My son has flown with Challenge Air in the DFW area several times. When he first started, he could not sit up by himself enough to sit in the "co-pilot" seat. Now, he has "flown" the plane several times thanks to several wonderful pilots. I cannot begin to express the joy and pride on his face as is loaded on the plane from his wheelchair, flies, and then gets off the plane - all to the cheers of the crowds and numerous devoted volunteers! It brings joy to my heart and tears to my eyes each time!
Thank-you from the bottom our my hearts!!

I just had to write you and thank you so very much for the gift of flight you, and your wonderful program, gave to my Grandsons last Saturday afternoon. It was an absolutely beautiful day, and this had to be one of the most thoughtful gifts I can think of for them to have received; you see one of them has Downs Syndrome, complicated by heart conditions that make it impossible for him to fly on a commercial flight in a pressurized cabin.Read more...
