Dreams and Wings Day gives children with disabilities the chance to soar


Children with disabilities, ages 6-17, have the chance to take a bird’s eye view of Michigan’s countryside at Oakland County Parks’ Dreams and Wings. The free event is held at Oakland County International Airport Saturday, July 12.
The annual event allows each participant and up to two family members or friends to fly with an experienced pilot in a light airplane. An adult must accompany the participant on the flight. Flight times are 9:30 a.m.; 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. The day will also include a short ground school to learn about airplanes and how they fly; educational displays; fun activities and refreshments. Each registered child will receive a Dreams and Wings t-shirt, gold aviator wings and commemorative flight certificate.
Submit registration form by June 13. Submission does not guarantee a flight reservation. Applications are entered into a selection lottery. First-time participants receive priority. Names are selected June 20 and participants will be notified via e-mail by June 23. Applicants not drawn will be placed on a waiting list.
For more information, call Oakland County Parks and Recreation at 248.424.7081 or e-mail adaptive@oakgov.com.
Oakland County International Airport is located at 6500 Highland Rd. in Waterford.
