Nothing Compares

“I have been a pilot since 1963 and through the years always enjoyed taking first-time passengers up to experience the wonders of flight. I flew many years for Civil Air Patrol, which gave me the opportunity to give many flights to young Cadets.
However, nothing compares to the experience of flying with a child who is challenged in life; to see the expressions of delight, to watch the feeling of being able to control their emotions, to rejoice at being free and to watch the parent or guardian see emotions they had never seen before. I also have a handicapped child and would take her flying at every opportunity. Thank you Challenge Air for giving me the opportunity to pass on to those less fortunate, the freedom of flight.”
