SOAR-ing in July
We were so excited to have another SOAR event on July 2 at the San Gabriel Valley Airport in El Monte. Through SOAR, kids with special needs have the opportunity to fly real airplanes and be celebrated as “certified co-pilots.” By pairing the unique joy of aviation with achievement, SOAR aims to foster confidence in children so that they may soar towards their greatest potential. 

We had 30 kids sign up for this event within 48 hours, and we had a waiting list!  They flew for about 30 minutes around El Monte.  After the flight, their pilot would present them with their co-pilot certificate and wings.

The Kids!
These are some of the special kids that flew with us.  Each one was accompanied by their parent, or legal guardian.  They were so excited to sit in the copilot seat, and some even learned how to check fuel levels in the plane.
Some of our Volunteers
Volunteers are needed to help check in the SOAR kids, pass out T-shirts, escort the kids and family to their plane, and clean the plane after each flight.  
The Ground Crew
Our ground crew worked all day towing the planes to avoid spinning propellers in the loading zone for the kids.
