Seated beside an experienced pilot in an airplane, individuals ages 6-17 with disabilities and up to two family members and/or friends can experience the world from a new perspective during Dreams & Wings at the Oakland County International Airport Barnstormers Hanger in Waterford. The day includes a short ground school to learn about airplanes and how they fly; educational displays; fun activities; and refreshments. Each child with a disability receives a Dreams & Wings T-shirt, gold aviator wings, commemorative flight certificate and lifelong memories. There is no charge to attend. All costs are covered by philanthropic contributions. Registration is due by June 9. Submission of registration form for limited time slots does not guarantee a flight reservation. Applications are entered in a selection lottery with first-time participants receiving priority. Participants will be notified via email by June 13 and applicants whose names are not drawn will be placed on a waiting list. Flight times will be assigned.
