"HELP US HELP KIDS"
General Daniel "Chappie" James Flight Academy of Pensacola, FL
We were founded in 1996 by four Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard flight instructors desiring to make a difference in the lives of kids.
"Build confidence in the classroom using aviation as the key learning disipline"
Our program exposes inner-city youth to aviation via the STEM process. Kids are given the opportunity to experience aviation and its many careers up close and personal. The exposure includes the opportunity to experience flight at the controls of a light aircraft.
Currently, we are in dire need of operating funds to support the continued efforts of the Flight Academy.
The past year was a drain on the Academys' coffers.
Students built a operating tabletop Wind Tunnel, Desktop computer and participated in numerous field trips.
In addition, we purchased four (4) full blown desktop Flight Simulators with flight controls, monitors and software.
We are embarking on an ambitious program to expand our current location.
Currently the City of Pensacola and the Flight Academy are in negotiations to procure additional building space. The space will need to be outfitted with everything from furniture to updated computer based teaching aids.
Please support our continued efforts to impact kids lives.
Your generous charitibale donations WILL and HAVE made a difference.
Our operation is run solely by unpaid volunteers.
100% of all donations go directly to supporting the youth of Pensacola!
Thank you for your support.
