On Saturday, June 1st and Sunday, June 2nd, Freedom’s Wings will offer free introductory rides to interested disabled individuals; rain dates are the following weekend. The event will be hosted by the Philadelphia Glider Council at their airport in Hilltown, PA located approximately 40 miles north of Philadelphia. There will also be a cookout Saturday afternoon for all participants and their families.

Currently there are slots available for persons with disabilities who would like to experience the joy of soaring flight. If you’re interested in participating, call 1-800-382-1197 to reserve a time slot for a 20 minute ride. There are only a limited number of flights available so call now if you want to experience the thrill of soaring. Last year our 32 slots filled up quickly so I encourage anyone wishing to participate to please call and reserve a slot—leave a message and your phone number if necessary.

For those who have never flown with FWI we suggest you visit our website and check us out on Facebook  and “Like” us. A bunch of photo albums will be added soon. Check out the pictures and comments from last year’s participants at our website under the tabs Member Experiences and Video Gallery.

We hope to see you out at the PGC gliderport in June!
