Giving Tuesday


In 1993, the Founder of Challenge Air, Rick Amber, decided to buy an airplane and use it as a motivational tool to increase confidence and self-esteem in kids with special needs by giving them an opportunity to fly.

Rick’s dream was to give 1 million children with special needs the opportunity to learn more about flying and to dream that one-day they too could become a pilot. In the past 29+ years, Challenge Air has flown over 36,000 co-pilots and their families.

Please join us this Giving Tuesday (November 29th) to continue to pursue Rick’s goal of flying 1 million co-pilots. Each fly day event is offered at no-cost to our co-pilots and their families. It costs approximately $250 to fly one child with special needs. Please join us today, or on Giving Tuesday to help build confidence in children with special needs.


Help us to land 2022 well, and to take off in 2023! Thank you for your support.
