Our organization started over 23 years ago in Pensacola, FL.  We determined there was a severe lack of exposure to aviation for kids growing up in the inner-city.  Pensacola, FL is the "Craddle of Naval Aviation.  Kids in urban area have very little exposure to aviation and it's vast opportunities.  As a result of this lack of exposure the General Daniel Chappie James Summer Flight Academy was born.  Our program uses the STEM(Science, Technology, Engirneering and Math) model to expose kids to aviation concepts.  We also introduce the kids to leadership and accountabilty.
