Dare to dream. Dare to fly. Earn the right.


Imagine pilots landing in farm fields and stunt fliers carving loops over awestruck audiences.  Picture wing walkers and air racers.  Slip back to a time when planes were guided to safety by smudge pots and radio beams and light beacons strung across the land.

It all happened not so very long ago, and some of the young people who grew up then lost their hearts to those fragile planes slicing through the sky. You could do that then, and you can now. Or maybe you already know that.
