New Orleans museum to host Able Flight benefit party

According to organizers, it’ll be a night of great music, great food and all for a great cause when friends, aviation celebrities and sponsors celebrate the successes of Able Flight pilots on May 30 at the National WWII Museum in New Orleans.

Special guests include Aviation Hall of Fame inductee Patty Wagstaff (others to be announced later), and up to 10 Able Flight pilots, including several wounded veterans who will be honored at one of the country’s premier museums.

The benefit will be an opportunity to grow the scholarship fund, making it possible for Able Flight to bring even more people into aviation, according to officials.
