On November 5th Pinnacle Aviation was able to be a part of an event held at Scottsdale Airpark called Sky Kids. Sky Kids offers children with special needs an opportunity to fly in a general aviation aircraft with an expert pilot along with a parent or friend to experience the wonders and enjoyment of flight. The children gain confidence and self-esteem by being “in command” of the amazing machine. Pilot/Owners donate their time and aircraft to give children with special needs the opportunity to fly. On a special note children were able to fly in a Grumman G-44 Widgeon that was flown by Tod Dickey. Tod is a Pinnacle Aviation client and also owns and pilots a Beechjet 400 that is part of the Pinnacle Aviation Charter fleet.
Thanks to Ken Casey for coordinating this event. His efforts in making a difference for these children are truly inspiring.
