Experiencing the world from a new perspective
is what Dreams and Wings is all about for
children with disabilities.
Seated beside an experienced pilot in a light
airplane, each child and up to two family
members and/or friends, will gently escape
gravity and soar with the clouds to take a bird’s
eye view of Michigan’s countryside.
A Dreams and Wings Fly Day includes a short
ground school to learn about airplanes and
how they fly; educational displays; fun activities
and refreshments.
Each child with a disability receives a
Dreams and Wings T-shirt, gold aviator
wings, commemorative flight certificate
and life-long memories.
There is no charge for participation in Dreams
and Wings Fly Day. All cost are covered by
