"The tragic ambush and shootings of law enforcement officers in Dallas, TX and Baton Rouge, LA have left a significant ugly scar on the freedoms of our country," said Ret, Col. Jack Howell, the program's founder. "I felt called to help in some way, so effective immediately, teenagers from law enforcement families who have lost a parent in a line of duty death or immobilizing injury are now eligible to participate in the Teens-In-Flight program," he added. Teens enrolled in this program have the opportunity to earn, at no cost, a private pilot's license. Teens-In-Flight uses aviation as a conduit to help teens overcome their Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Teens-In-Flight is a 501(C) 3 foundation formed to support the families of our military. Through the modem of aerospace education we open the doors of opportunity. Teens-In-Flight provides flight training and aviation maintenance scholarships to those teens that have lost a parent in the Global War on Terrorism or, is the teen of a parent who was wounded in action and is disabled. And starting in July, 2016, teenagers from law enforcement families who have lost a parent in a line of duty death or immobilizing injury. Another phase of the program also focuses on selected teens that are considered "at risk" within our community by providing a positive aviation intervention experience. The program could not exist without the generous donations from the community and caring public.
