When the next Able Flight scholarship winners prepare for a flight, they’ll have the option of doing so with ForeFlight’s Mobile HD software. ForeFlight, a provider of aviation software for pilots, is the newest sponsor of Able Flight’s unique flight training program for people with physical disabilities. In addition to a financial donation for the scholarship fund, ForeFlight will provide software for Able Flight’s student pilots to use during their training.
Jason Miller, co-founder of ForeFlight said, “ForeFlight is exceptionally pleased to help Able Flight in their efforts. Flying is true freedom, and Able Flight provides that freedom to so many wonderful people. It’s truly a privilege to sponsor that work.”
“We’re honored to have ForeFlight join us in our mission to use aviation to change the lives of people with disabilities,” said Charles Stites of Able Flight. “ForeFlight’s co-founders Tyson Weihs and Jason Miller are both pilots, and they clearly understand the impact that learning to fly can have on people who only need an opportunity to prove their abilities. It has been amazing to see their company’s growth over the last few years, and we’re excited that our student pilots will have the opportunity to use their software.”
Able Flight is a national aviation nonprofit that provides flight and aviation career training opportunities for people with physical disabilities and is the only one of its kind in the United States.
