For the past 38 years we have been flying the same original planes to be built with hand controls. In all reality we need $200,000 each to replace our aging planes. (2 of them)

But the immediate concern is far more dire. The wings need to be resurfaced every 15 years to to uv light damage. Tthey will not fly again next year unless we raise the minimal ammount just to cover this vital repair.

To complicate things further, Donald Trump spends every weekend golfing, closing the airspace we need to fly. This has drasticly impacted the number of inspirational flights we have done, the number of events with local rehabs and wounded warriors organizations, aand has virtualy shut down out flight training program. I'm sure you can guess the impact that has caused in our fundraing!

One of our pilots currently holds 2 state records in NJ. But whats more impressive is just last month, a paraplegic glider pilot won day 2 of the world glider championships! beatting the most elite glider pilots in the world.

When you leave your chair behind, you are no longer handicapped. You are a pilot whos skills alone matter.

Your support matters to so many.

Thank you from all of the people you will be helping realize a dream.

Pete Golden became paralyzed 27 years ago, on;y miles from where FWI was founded. Every flight he ever took was over the very spot he became disabled. Never once had that tragic moment crossed his mind while in the sky above. That's the power of Freedoms
