The Challenge Air “Fly Day” offers, disabled and seriously ill children, free 30-minute plane rides. The single-engine planes are flown by a volunteer team of 25-30 disabled and able-bodied pilots who donate their time and services for the event.
The Challenge Air “Fly Day” focuses on the children’s abilities and shows them through example the many possibilities available to them. The fun-filled day will consist of an educational ground school where the children will enjoy the following: an inspirational flight in the co-pilot seat soaring over local points of interest, learning about the forces of flight and how physically challenged pilots fly with specially equipped airplanes, static aircraft for the children to see; face painting and clowns; a visit from the Canine Companions of Independence; food, music, and other fun.
Registration is important as there is limited seating availability. The cost of the event is free to the participating children; however, Challenge Air is able to provide these once-in-a-lifetime experiences through corporate, individual, and foundation support and donations.
