Adopt A Co-Pilot

Uncategorized
Remember the first time you flew in an airplane? Often times, an experience flying with Challenge Air is a first time experience flying for our co-pilots.
You can change the way a child sees their disability by lifting their spirits and encouraging them to believe in themselves. Would you consider supporting just one flight?
Donating $150 to adopt one co-pilot, covers the estimated overhead cost per child. This affords us to be able to fly more and more kids every year, and you can even designate the city of your choice!
You will receive a thank you note from one of our co-pilots and you will also have the knowledge that you helped a child with special needs with an experience of a lifetime!
Thank you in advance for making dreams come true with the last memory of flying an airplane!

Challenge Air takes the health and safety of our pilots, co-pilots, family members and volunteers very seriously.  Challenge Air follows local and national guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19 at all events.

All event participants will meet outside when appropriate, and maintain a social distance to mitigate the spread of COVID.  We also ask all pilots to sanitize cockpits before and after each mission.  The hangar will be cleaned periodically throughout the day in high-traffic areas.  Access to hand sanitizer and restrooms for hand-washing will be available.  If a community is experiencing a COVID breakout, the event would be postponed to a safer date.

YouTube Saturday, March 5th, 2021 at 12pm CST. 

✨WATCH A PREVIEW OF THE FLIGHT HERE

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 Palo Dura Canyons in West Texas 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 it 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.
