Challenge Air Kids Fly Day

Are you interested in helping build the self-esteem and confidence of children with specials needs? This is that event.

Since 1993, Challenge Air has enriched the lives of 30,000 children with special needs through its unique aviation programs. Challenge Air's mission reflects the life-changing impact the flight experience has on children, their families, and communities.

Here's an example of what this day can mean to some families:

Photos from past events here:

Come help with loading (escorting families to/from airplanes), cheer-leading (very important cheering section for the kids), crowd directing, food service, volunteer coordinating - or any number of other activities assigned the day-of.

The event typically runs 8am - 4pm, but half-day shifts are okay and encouraged. Comfortable shoes are a must. I'll update this with weather forecast info as the date approaches.

    Look for the Texas Jet sign on main street. It has a small Challenge Air banner beneath it! -Sam!

      Marianel, the Challenge Air director recommends that only age 16 and up sign up to volunteer. Hope this helps, and hope to see you there!

    I have to work and need to cancel. Do I need to further cancel via the organization's site not just here?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
