Virtual Fly Day

Uncategorized
 
Back by popular demand! 
 
Children and youth with special needs between the ages of 7 and 21 are invited to join us virtually on Saturday, June 12th, 2021. This event will be limited to the first 400 new participants. 
 
Open registration starts May 10th and can be found HERE. 
 
Each registered co-pilot will receive a virtual reality kit with a VR headset, Challenge Air T-shirt, wings and certificate prior to the event kick-off. 
 
A few more details below:
 
Using 360 -degree cameras mounted to the inside and outside of an aircraft, Pilot Glenn will take each co-pilot through the skies of Dallas, TX just as if they were seated next to the pilot. With the use of a Virtual Reality headset, the co-pilot will have the ability to place a smartphone in the headset and look through to experience the flight. The video is recorded to react to the viewer’s movement. If the child looks up, the video looks up. If the child looks out the window, the video looks out the window.

This event is offered at absolutely no cost to our co-pilots through the generosity of our donors. We are always in need of financial donations to get events like this off the ground. Big or small- every little bit helps. Consider making a voluntary $20 donation so we can continue to do great things in the lives of these children.
