COMING SOON FOR SUMMER 2019
Welcome to our new project that we hope to get airborne very very soon.
We have come up with a very cool project to help intellectually disabled people experience
God's world from the sky - FOR FREE!
My wife started flying about 6 years ago on her 40th birthday taking her first flight in a helicopter and then her second
flight in a light aircraft. Being as flying helicopters is an extremly expensive hobby, she took up flying light aircraft, gaining
her PPL licence. Since then we have wondered how we can bless others with her gift of flight and after careful
consideration, along with a few directing experiences, we realsied that we would be in an incredible position to offer
flights to the intellectually disabled. The reason we will be doing it for free is to bless people that would never normally
have an opportunity like this. It will also bless families and carers/helpers who are required to assist as well giving them
a great experience.
How do we fund it? - To start with we will fund it ourselves to get it off the ground. Hopefully two of my vehicles and
car trailer will sell very soon to be able to fund it for the whole of summer and beyond but we will be relying in the future
on donations from businesses and individuals to help with the costs.
At present, 1 hour (engine on time only, including warm up) costs NZ$220 for a four seater Cessna,
so we need to raise a lot of funds but it will be well worth it!
