I saw this and screamed "I WANT AN AIRPLANE RIDE!"
Sadly, I am not in the age group. I guess I could try to pull it off. I once got a senior discount in my 30's just for asking.

It's a great way to lift a kids spirits and widen their horizons.

I didn't step into a plane until I was 30 years old. That was a commercial flight to Europe.
In these planes, the kids will fly over areas they likely know but have never seen from these viewpoints.

More than 2 million young people have experienced their first flight this way since 1992.

Big thanks to all the pilots for offering their time and equipment for such an amazing opportunity.
