Nonprofit serving seniors receives $5,000 grant
Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation, a nonprofit that offers Dream Flights to U.S. military veterans living in retirement communities and long-term care facilities, received a $5,000 grant from Vital Life Foundation.
AADF relies on donations, sponsorships, and grant money to fund the Dream Flights, which are provided free of charge.
The volunteer crew travels the country year-round in one of three fully restored Boeing Stearman two-seater biplanes, the same aircraft military aviators used to train in during World War II. Dream Flight recipients strap on headsets and leather helmets and take to the skies at 1,000 feet for a 30-minute flight.
