Iron Maiden Frontman Helping Disabled People Learn to Fly
Bruce Dickinson has many accolades to his name. He's not only the frontman of Iron Maiden, one of thew most successful bands of all time, but also an olympic class fencer and a qualified pilot.

Now, Dickinson can add charity work to his already impressive CV, because of his involvement in Flying Scholarships for Disabled People. Dickinson has been the vice-patron of the charity for three years. The organization's aim is to help disabled people realize their abilities through learning to fly.

Speaking to the Leicester Mercury (via Noisecreep) before this year's Download festival, Dickinson talked about his involvement in the charity:

"It's not just about teaching people with disabilities to fly, it's much more than that," he said. "It's about creating friendships, and there's a whole community around it and support system that comes with people encouraging each other.

"It's something I'm very proud to be involved in."

More information about the charity is available at FSFDP.org.uk.
