AIRSPRINT TAKES PART IN THE PACIFIC AUTISM FAMILY NETWORK’S ‘FIRST FLIGHT PROGRAM’
AirSprint is about families, about connecting and making lasting memories. Hence why we are all thrilled to have partnered with the Pacific Autism Family Network‘s “FIRSTS” initiative which provides families of children on the autism spectrum with a unique opportunity to try flying for the first time. The kids and their families had a one-on-one chance to meet the pilots and tour the aircraft prior to the 30-minute flight that took them out to Whistler, B.C. and back. We were incredibly fortunate to share Braedon (13), Cloe (10) and Leo’s (5) first flying experience!
Thank you for letting us take part of this special day, and to Catherine Urquhart and Global BC for capturing this special moment.
