Who we are

Aviation Without Borders (AWB) is the leading UK aviation charity dedicated to providing humanitarian assistance in the UK and overseas using our aviation expertise and services.


We are independently registered in the UK and have a small office based at Heathrow Airport.

Like no other UK aviation charity, AWB is unique in using the talents and skills of the aviation community at large in a worthwhile humanitarian manner.


AWB has been active in the UK now for 11 years and, in addition, also operates internationally as a member of Aviation sans Frontières – International (ASF International), a “family” of similar aviation charities.


Stanley Stewart (Chair)

I am a retired BA 747 captain and aviation author. I have been a volunteer with the charity for more than a decade and am the national organiser for our National Fly Kids Day. I also do badly all the other boring jobs that nobody wants to do!

Daniel Nankoo (SECRETARY)

I am a senior lecturer in electrical and electronic engineering, with a passion for travelling, especially by plane. My enthusiasm for aeroplanes led me to search for volunteer roles in aviation, which led me to discover AWB in 2014. I have been a member ever since, and have participated in many events to help raise funds.

Jason Dwarika (Treasurer)

I am a former offshore oil and gas engineer, now following a career in aviation. My career change led me to becoming a volunteer for AWB in 2016 and soon after a trustee. AWB has opened up another dimension to my passion for aviation that I never thought possible and being a part of this fantastic team has been enjoyable and rewarding! “Once qualified, one of my goals will be to pilot a shipment of aid to one of the charities working in remote regions of Central Africa supported by ASF International’’
