Hey everyone whats going on. I am looking for some help with something. I am looking to see if there are any organizations out there that specialize in helping people, either under priviledged, disabled etc. get into aviation. I am a CFI and looking to maybe donate some time if any groups have week long programs etc. I would appreciate the help from you all.

I looked into Angel Flight http://www.Angelfight.org which is flying people to doctors who could not normally get there. You bid the flight, and fly it. It seems very nice to me, I was unable to do it as I was only 17.

Hi....I'm involved with travel issues for people with disabilities...I'm not sure there is any organization you mentioned...but I think it's excellent idea...two weeks ago, I attended the Soceity of Accessible Travel & Hospitaility Conference in Ft. Lauderdale -- at the end of the conference, some of us went down to Miami to ride in sailboats that was designed for various individuals (and childrens) with disabilities.
