Able Flight will pin wings on its newest pilots at a special ceremony Tuesday July 24, at AirVenture in Oshkosh.
On May 19, six Able Flight scholarship winners will arrive at Purdue University in Indiana to begin five weeks of intensive flight and ground training, an experience that will change their lives forever. The six men come from all over the country, and though their disabilities and challenges may be varied, they share the common goal of wanting to become a pilot.
Actor and pilot Morgan Freeman will host a benefit party for Able Flight April 21 at his Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale, Mississippi. Morgan will be there to welcome donors and the largest group of Able Flight pilots together in one place at one time.
