YOU CAN FLY CHALLENGE
The late James C. Ray believed that life skills are learned through aviation, which prompted his visionary support of AOPA’s You Can Fly program to help get (and keep) more pilots flying. His legacy lives on through the Ray Foundation’s 2019 You Can Fly Challenge that encourages other aviators to offer their support.
We thank those who have contributed to the 2019 You Can Fly Challenge! For pledges made on or before August 31, 2019, kindly note your pledge must be fulfilled on or before November 15, 2019 for your donation’s impact to be doubled by the Ray Foundation.
The You Can Fly program’s high school curriculum is inspiring the next generation of pilots and UAS professionals. To help improve the flight training experience, we will be releasing a customer service course for flight schools. We’ve helped start new flying clubs and supported existing clubs to make flying more accessible, affordable, and enjoyable. And our Rusty Pilots seminars have made it easier for lapsed pilots to complete their flight review.
