Helping Special Needs Kids Take Flight Print

Achen-Gardner Construction is proud to have again been a sponsor and volunteer at the Sky Kids’ Third Annual Fly Day Event For Special Kids held at Phoenix-Goodyear Airport on April 12.

Achen-Gardner Construction sponsor Sky Kids Phoenix-Goodyear Airport Annual Fly Day Event for Special Needs Kids General Aviation Aircraft Self Esteem Confidence

The Sky Kids event gave 144 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. It was a fun day on the ground too, with face painting, clowns, a BBQ lunch, aircraft displays, the Goodyear Police K9 Unit, the Goodyear Police "Big Bear Cat" SWAT vehicle, a Goodyear Fire Engine, and much more. Thank you to all of the volunteers who made the Third Annual Fly Day Event possible.
