About Teens In Flight
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 on active duty, is the teen of a parent who was wounded in action and is disabled. In 2016, the program added 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.
