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.
