Eagle’s Wings Flight School will introduce young people to aviation through ground and airborne flying instruction. Airborne instruction will include all of the basic elements of flying: take offs, landings and aircraft handling. Ground instruction will cover technical elements as well as non-technical skill sets that are universally applicable in any trade or occupation (e.g. professionalism, communication, etc.).
Airborne instruction will utilize an ultralight aircraft as the training platform. All training carried out by Eagle’s Wings can be applied towards more advanced licenses should students choose to pursue aviation training in the future.
While further pursuit of aviation training would be an exciting outcome for prospective students, that is not the primary goal. By learning to fly, at-risk youth will experience a unique sense of accomplishment. This sense of accomplishment fuels self-confidence and provides tangible evidence of what they are capable of when they commit to a task and persevere to its completion.
That is where Eagle’s Wings’ passion and purpose lies — to see young people transform their outlook and their lives as we ‘slip the surly bonds of earth and dance the skies on laughter-silvered wings’ together.
