Challenge Air for Kids & Friends
The 2018 Challenge Air for Kids & Friends flying season is over. We are proud to announce that Challenge Air hosted 14 Fly Days in 2018. Over 175 pilots donated their time, airplane and fuel to fly almost 1,000 children with special needs and their families. And we must recognize the almost 1,500 volunteers and donors that made these 14 fly days possible!
Thank you and many wishes for a wonderful holiday season and New Year to all our Challenge Air friends & family!
The November 3rd Fly Day is no longer accepting registration for kids to fly. We are sorry you missed us this year. Check back in January for the 2019 date!
Pilots and Volunteers still need to register.
Thank you to everyone who attended the 25th Anniversary Celebration! Over 150 people enjoyed a fun evening of fellowship, remembering Rick Amber and hearing Jessica Cox’s amazing story about over-coming obstacles. Special co-pilots Jimmy and Tommy Crisp and their mom and dad, also shared an inspirational story. Here’s to another 25 years!
On Wednesday, June 13, 12 kids from the summer camp program Camp Challenge, participated in a fly day at the Hank Sasser Breakaway Air Park in Cedar Park, TX. The day focused on trying things out of you comfort zone. Five pilots from this small aviation community provided the flights while local community volunteers cooked burgers and hot dogs for lunch. A special thanks to this aviation community for helping promote the mission of Challenge Air for Kids & Friends.
The Heaven’s Landing Fly Day on April 7th will go on as planned. It looks like the weather has cleared enough that we will be able to fly. We look forward to seeing you there!
