Charles Stites, Executive Director of Able Flight
We have never done a show that has made us feel as good as this one. Charles Stites, executive director of Able Flight, joined us on the show. Charles was inspired and used his creativity to look in places that others weren't to help open up aviation to people that normally wouldn't have the opportunity. We spent about an hour on the phone with Charles and it is very apparent that Able Flight takes ownership of other aviators goals and helps them come true. There are so many stories that Charles wished he could have told, quite frankly we want to hear all of them. You can see and hear a lot of the success stories of Able Flight and its scholarship winners on their scholarship winners page. Able Flight and Purdue University's Aviation Program have teamed up to maximize the opportunity for Able Flight Scholarship Winners. With Purdue on board, Able Flight has found that the pilot scholarship winners have been achieving a sense of freedom beyond their wildest dreams. Our conversation with Charles has gotten us so excited we are going to keep our listeners updated on Able Flight's progress and how you can help!
The best way to help AbleFlight is to help buy a gallon of AvGas. A small donation, $5, can go along way. It will certainly make a big difference. There is another way you can help AbleFlight and that is to spread the word. If you know somebody with a disability and loves aviation, show them AbleFlight!
