A number of organizations provide donations to make this discovery flight event possible. We would like to thank them here.

This free event is only possible because of the work of many volunteers, the pilots who volunteer their time, aircraft and fuel, and the donations we receive. All of the funds we receive go to the expenses of the event. Any excess is used to finance introductory flight lessons for deserving women.

We really appreciate the donations contributed by the following:
