YOU CAN FLY CHALLENGE

 

To Double your Donation
Help get and keep more pilots flying
to build a stronger pilot community!

 

The late James C. Ray believed that life skills are learned through aviation, which prompted his visionary support of AOPA Foundation’s You Can Fly program to help get (and keep) more pilots flying. His legacy lives on through the Ray Foundation’s 2021 You Can Fly Challenge that encourages other aviators to offer their support.

Make or pledge a gift to the AOPA Foundation through the You Can Fly Challenge and the Ray Foundation will match what you give, dollar-for-dollar (up to $2.5 million), until December 31, 2021.*

Your generosity will inspire the next generation of aviators through You Can Fly’s high school curriculum. You will help start new flying clubs and support existing clubs to make flying more accessible, affordable, and enjoyable. You will provide flight training resources that help students complete their training and help schools and instructors deliver the kind of experiences that today’s pilots demand.

We thank those who have already doubled their impact with the 2021 You Can Fly Challenge!

*Kindly note that only pledge payments made on or before December 31, 2021 will be doubled by the Ray Foundation.

A key to the You Can Fly program’s effectiveness is that it supports pilots wherever they may be in their journey, whether they’re being introduced to general aviation, in flight training, actively flying, or they need help getting back into flying.
