Hosted by Philadelphia Glider Council

The official announcement of the Freedom’s Wings International (FWI) – Philadelphia Glider Council (PGC) event is going out! This is our ninth (9th!) year hosted by PGC, and we’re looking forward again to a great time for everybody involved.

Freedom’s Wings International is a non-profit organization which provides an opportunity for persons with physical disabilities to fly in specially adapted sailplanes.

On Saturday, June 7th and Sunday, June 8th, 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 be a cookout Saturday afternoon for all participants and their families.

Interested participants should call the toll free number 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.

Check out the pictures and comments from last year’s participants at our website under the tabs Member Experiences and Video Gallery.
