Freedom Flyers is an IRS nonprofit organization and our threefold mission is to use aviation to reach out:
- To our youth, To those in need and To Honor our Veterans.
Working with youth is our primary mission and over 70 % of our time and resources go to creating and delivering innovative STEM based youth programs.
However we understand that not all of our students will go on to be pilots or work in the field of aviation. This is not our goal.
Our goal is to awaken interest in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. American youth have consistently fallen behind in these topics over the last five years. Our goal is to change that.
Aviation is the perfect venue for this type of learning. It is exciting, holds young people’s attention and is fun.
Our unique approach is to teach subject areas such as math and science and incorporate engineering and technology into a same learning experience.
The result is a rich learning environment that awakens young people to the endless possibilities in the field of science, technology, engineering and math.
Freedom Flyers endeavors to honors the 16 million who served in the armed forces of the U.S. and the more than 400,000 who died defending our country and the principles upon which it has been built.
Freedom Flyers has two World War II Warbirds in its fleet. They are the P51- Mustang and the Navy AT-6. These Warbirds are flown at airshow and aviation events around the country and provides World War II veterans with a once in a lifetime opportunity. Their opportunity to fly in these legendary aircraft.
Freedom Flyers also reaches out to those in need by proving free humanitarian air transportation. We have a strong commitment to using our aviation resources to help in meaningful ways.
Therefore, veterans and people with limited financial means, who may need treatment at distant medical facilities, may travel with us at no cost.
Come join Freedom Flyers on our mission to make a difference. We welcome your help and need your support. For more information on how we can work together, call 512-756-6163.
