Irish pilot Mikey McMahon organised a real treat for his little brother, Robbie – Robbie has Williams Syndrome, a genetic condition that affects one in 10,000 people worldwide.

Mikey wanted to share his love of flying with his little brother, so he took him up on his very first helicopter ride.

Mikey told the Irish Independent that he spends most of his evenings and days off with his little brother – he says Robbie has an “obsession” with helicopters and he wanted to make his dream of flying in one come true.


Ah, lovely.
