Flight Across America

Flight Across America is a business initiative started by some of our members here at Flight Club 502 to help lead the youth of America along the path of success by utilizing aviation and the core STEM subjects that come with it. What Flight Across America intends to do is to take our mission statement and expand it on a national scale. We plan to coordinate a nationwide outreach program with the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) airports to allow many high school students to pursue aviation and to find a love for the Next Gen/STEM education system that they might not otherwise have access to. What this will encompass is having a group of our members stopping in major cities across the United States and furthering our Louisville mission statement and doing something much similar to what we have here in Kentucky, but on a much bigger scale. We will use the RV12 as evidence of our mission’s success here in Louisville and will tour the nation with the aircraft. If you’re interested in donating, we have a comprehensive list of our different sponsor levels and what each category entails.
