Giving Kids Wings Flight Academy (GKWFA) is a 501(c)3 public benefit corporation. We teach math and science through aviation, introducing high school students to aviation careers and providing them with career flight training. Our program pays special attention to increasing the participation of minorities and women in aviation.
An introductory flight lesson in the scenic skies of L.A. ignites students' vision of their potential.
Our licensed ground and flight training helps teens seize their dreams of flight. We empower students to become licensed pilots, instructors, and beyond!
We help educational institutions to develop programs in flight, maintenance, and air traffic control. Engage students and enhance achievement!
We are proud of the teens who take hold of the yoke of the plane and of their lives by devoting themselves to flight training. That’s why we’re happy to make a fuss about the teenagers who are currently chasing their dreams of flight with us:
Ben V, John W, and Nathaniel L.

“We flew…around the coast of Palos Verdes and that was probably the best hour of my life. After the flight, I told my dad that I knew I wanted to fly for the rest of my life.”
“Thanks to my instructor…my knowledge of aviation grew. I learned basic aviation knowledge and skills and about the physics of flight. But, most importantly, I found that I wanted to experience it for myself.”
“Aviation got me to where I wanted to be. It’s all thanks to Dan because he always had this passion, and that passion molded me.”
Are you interested in participating in one of our Flight Training or Glider Training Camps? Becoming a high school aviation student? Partnering with us in a teaching or sponsorship capacity to help us provide career aviation training?
