Lend a Hand
➀ Fly Day Volunteer
The success of our program is dependent upon the help of volunteers. During a Fly Day, we need volunteers to check-in students upon arrival, print pictures and certificates, run the food and sales tables, dispatch and escort students to their aircraft. We cannot do it without you!
When and Where?
Fly Days are scheduled on Saturdays and some weekday afternoons almost every week from late September through early May. They take place at the Executive Terminal at Tucson International Airport or Marana Regional Airport depending on the location of participating schools and other factors
➁ Office and Fundraising Volunteers
Wright Flight has many opportunities for pilots and non-pilots who would like to get involved but cannot attend Fly Days. Wright Flight depends on volunteers to assist with curriculum development/update, course material distribution to teachers, Fly Day/ground event preparation and scheduling, volunteer coordination, and a variety of other tasks
Also, as all pilots are aware, there are four forces of flight – lift, drag, thrust, and weight but there is a fifth force that keeps Wright Flight students flying – money! Volunteers are needed to develop and conduct fundraising events throughout the community. Grant writers are also needed to research, draft, and submit proposals to help Wright Flight receive grant funding to further curriculum development, expand the reach of Wright Flight to other schools/students, and acquire/maintain aircraft.
When and Where?
Office and fundraising volunteers work flexible hours either in the Wright Flight offices at 7075 S Plumer Ave -Suite14 in Tucson or remotely at the volunteer’s home or office.
