TEENS-IN-FLIGHT

A 501 (c) 3 foundation formed to support the families of our military.

Mission Statement:

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 who have lost a parent or sibling in the Global War On Terrorism or, is the teen or sibling of a parent who was wounded in action and is disabled. Another phase of our program also focuses on selected teens that are considered "at risk" within our community by providing a positive aviation intervention experience.

TEENS-IN-FLIGHT IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE OUR PLANS FOR EXPANSION THROUGHOUT THE NATION.   OUR EXPANSION IS DIRECTED TO, AND AROUND, MILITARY INSTALLATIONS TO BETTER SERVE THE CHILDREN OF THE SERVICE MEMBERS WHO HAVE LOST THEIR LIFE IN THE WAR ON TERROR IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN.  TEENS-IN-FLIGHT ANTICIPATES OUR PROGRAMS AT FORT BRAGG, NC, CAMP LEJUNE, NC, FORT HOOD, TX AND FORT BLISS, TX THIS YEAR.   PROGRAM EXPANSION COULD NOT BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT OUR BENEFACTORS, THE FAA, AND THE STEPHEN M. PRICE FOUNDATION .  THIS IS OUR EFFORT TO HELP THESE FAMILIES BEGIN THE HEALING PROCESS AND TO SHOW OUR APPRECIATION TO OUR ARMED FORCES MEMBERS WHO HAVE SACRIFICED ALL FOR OUR FREEDOM.
