On May 6th, 2018 three close friends Calvin, Mitch and Adam will climb aboard a single engine Cessna 182P and embark on the "Flight to 48," an aviation adventure to each of the 48 contiguous states. Aside from what they know will be an adventure of a lifetime, the three have realized this journey has the opportunity to create a positive impact in the aviation industry. In light of this realization, they formed a partnership with a charity in Indianapolis known as Aviation Career Education (ACE) Academy. The goal of this flight is to raise funds and generate nationwide awareness for ACE's mission. 

The Flight to 48 is just the beginning of a long-term plan to support ACE. We plan to utilize the material generated during the flight to provide value for ACE for years to come. This includes:

  • Interviewing aviation professionals to use as testimonials for students
  • Documenting learning experiences to provide practical application
  • Speaking at ACE events to personally engage with students

Your support will be an excellent way to give young students the opportunity to learn what they can do to impact the future of the aviation world. If you believe this is something you would like to become involved in please contact us at info@flightto48.com or donate directly here. Thank you for your time and consideration in supporting the future of the aviation world that we all love.

Indy ACE provides opportunities for students to gain exposure to the careers in aviation, while building their confidence in areas of public speaking, teamwork, professional development, and other core areas. ACE helps create a pathway for these students to continue their education, attend a technical school, or simply use the tools given to enhance their abilities in their life decisions.
