THE CHILDREN'S FLIGHT
In The Spirit Of Ubuntu
The Children’s Flight’s origins lie in a music video called ‘Paper Plane’, which is essentially about a child with a Dream to fly, but on a deeper level it’s about anyone with a dream.
Aviation is traditionally about defying great odds and overcoming the laws of nature, the politics of man, the limitations of economy, and technological development…..for so long aviation was an exclusive privilege to supreme military, selected individuals or the super wealthy…
We wanted to bring home aviation to the children, to promote the idea that anyone can be what ever they dream of being… That you can literally ‘take that paper plane to your destiny’…. one day if even one of these kids goes for their dream, then this day may have played a role in that.
A special thank you…
To all the Pilots, Management, Safety Officers, Ground Crews, Bus Drivers, Sponsors & Charities.
None of this would be possible without your help, you are all Heros and Heroines for yourself sacrifice to making this day special. You created hope where there may not have been before, you made people smile, you made the sky accessible, and you demonstrated the theme of living the dream…. Your contribution is revered, remembered and Inspirational.
May we fly again one day soon…
God Bless You All.
