Dear families, volunteers, pilots and supporters,
It’s going to be ok!
That’s what we all need to hear right now. Is it ok now, no. Did Challenge Air
have to cancel its spring Fly Day season, yes. Are many of our friends and families
hurting right now, yes. Are we scared and unsure of what tomorrow might bring,
yes. But you know what? Our country is strong. Challenge Air is strong and YOU
Please know that the Board of Trustees and the staff at Challenge Air are utilizing
this time to think outside the box to raise the needed funds to continue our
mission. Staff is busy looking for new and creative ways to bring “virtual flying” to
our special co-pilots stuck at home. We are busy planning our fall Fly Days and
rescheduling our spring events that were cancelled. Challenge Air will continue to
offer life changing aviation experiences to children and youth with special needs!
I hope you and your families are using this time to think about life differently. I
know I have been re-thinking how I spend time at work, at home and with friends
and family. Please know I am thinking of you and praying for health and safety for
each of you. I’m so sorry fly days were cancelled because of Covid-19 but I
promise you as soon as it’s safe, Challenge Air will have kids back up in the air!
Take Care and God bless,
April Culver, CEO/Executive Director
