Ride Up Comfortably

At Grand Cayman's Owen Roberts International Airport, a new Ambistair system eases getting on or off a plane for the wheel-chair bound.

This week (Monday, 12 September) GIS Spotlight helps persons with mobility problems, gets up-close with a native son, chats around the water cooler and invites volunteers.

Travelling, especially managing stairs on and off an aircraft, can be challenging for the wheel-chair bound. So far in Cayman's airports, disabled air passengers had to be carried up or down the stairs by some strong personnel.

Join us to see how a new chair-lift equipped stair system at the Grand Cayman airport eases travel for the disabled who use a wheelchair. Meet the benefactors from Island Air who made the Ambistair system happen.

Next, it's off to the National Gallery to experience a day in the life of artist in residence Wray Banker. See the intricate ways he seeks expression in art forms and hear what constitutes his muse.

After that, gather around the water cooler to pick up useful tips from a pro to keep the appliance spotless and ensure you get a refreshing glass of crisp, clean water every time.

Finally, we take you to the stomping grounds of the National Cadet Corps, a character and discipline builder for Cayman's young people. Hear what it takes to be a volunteer and how you can help improve a young person's life.

Produced by Government Information Services, GIS Spotlight highlights government's services and solutions regarding issues that concern and affect you.

The weekly programme now airs on Cayman27 at 8:30 p.m. on Mondays, and 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays. All stories seen in this week's show can also be found on the GIS Marketing and Communications website: www.gis.ky.
