Director in the United States
When work became almost impossible to find for Fred Meyling due to being confined to a wheelchair, he decided to create his own work by starting small businesses while working primarily with nonprofit groups. Later, he would run his own nonprofit that was specially designed to help people with disabilities. As a pilot for one charity, he has been able to fly many different planes and volunteer at Sun n Fun for over 30 years. He also founded their “Handicap Services Department,” as well as acted as a chairman in other departments of the organization. Fred Meyling took what could have been a devastating situation and instead made it one that supported himself and created work and opportunities for others.
