We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to “helping kids reach new heights” in both their
classrooms and their lives. Wright Flight is a motivational program that teaches today’s youth how to set
goals and achieve them. Since its inception in 1986, over 20,000 students have graduated from the
program. What motivated them? The chance to fly.
The Wright Flight program teaches that with hard-work, diligence, and focus no goal is out of reach — not
even becoming a pilot. Passing the program is not easy as each student must achieve an academic or
personal goal while simultaneously completing the Wright Flight curriculum and passing a final test. Only
students who work hard enough graduate and only they earn the right to fly.
The program culminates with a “flight experience” depending upon which Wright Flight program the
student has completed. At the Flydays, each graduate gets the chance to fly an airplane. They do not
just get a ride, they will take the controls as they soar through the sky
After the flight, each student gets a picture of themselves and the pilot in front of the airplane, as well as a
Wright Flight T-shirt.
