The mission of Giving Kids Wings Flight Academy (GKWFA), a 501(c)3 public benefit corporation, is to excite and engage students in education and to prepare them for empowered, fulfilling futures by teaching math and science in the context of aviation.
We are passionate about increasing equality and diversity in education and professional aviation fields by cultivating the participation of minorities and women in our programs. GKWFA aspires to be a leader in educational innovation, promoting and manifesting lasting institutional and societal change.
GKWFA’s exciting program also seeks to build bridges between young adults and aviation careers. By helping students to achieve in STEM fields and by building critical reasoning and communication skills, GKWFA aims to enhance students’ professional opportunities today and tomorrow.
Our organization helps students to awaken to their own potential, to stand up and then soar into their future, to find purpose and empowerment in education and in the larger world.
We also wish to spread this passion by helping districts and schools to build their own programs in aviation flight, maintenance, and air traffic control. We offer professional consulting in this capacity. Seventeen years of experience have furnished us with an extensive, professional, aviation-education network that is without parallel.
Since our founding in December, 2008, 90% of GKWFA’s total expenditures have been on direct programmatic services. We run a lean and efficient organization in order to maximize the financial support our students receive.
Giving Kids Wings Flight Academy invites students, educators, and professionals, learners and donors alike, to benefit from the abundant expertise and well-oiled machinery that we bring to the tarmac.
Come and take wing with us!
