Dream Flyers Program
Spring Dream Flight season was off to a rainy start, with our May Dream Flight Day postponed three times due to uncooperative weather. Thanks to the incredible generosity and flixibility of volunteer Pilot Squadron, all of our May Dream Flyers eventually flew on different weekends. Our June Dream Flight Day was exceptional, with 13 Flyers and 40 volunteers taking part in the fun. Above the Clouds will host its second Big/Little Sister day on July 21st. We hope to see you there!
Discovery and Cadet Flyers
Cadet Flyers began their Summer training on June 27th with a ground school session. These Cadets (Kate, Julian, and Evelyn) will be flying all Summer in preparation for solo flight this Fall! In May, Mireyda and Kate (pictured above) flew to Hanscom Field with Discovery Pilot David Hampson to visit the Owls Head Transportation Museum. Many of our Discovery and Cadet Flyers will participate in the JetBlue "Ace Academy" where they will visit an air force base, the aviation program at Bridgewater State, and the JetBlue operations at Logan Airport.
