Above the Clouds has changed my life because they have shown me that there are always new opportunities in every direction. I never thought that I could learn to fly a plane but I took a chance and learned to believe in myself as much as they believed in me

ATC is changing lives by taking the underutilized, dynamic world of general aviation and channeling those resources towards fostering happiness and exploration to young individuals that could have never imagined such an experience.”

I just wanted to let you know that I’ve seen AJ wearing his “Clouds” jacket frequently. The other day he was telling me & others all about his flight and how great it was. Thanks again to you and your organization for all you do for kids

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the wonderful pilots and volunteers of this amazing group. Today you gave my nephew, Ryan Hastings, one of the best days of his life! You brought fun, excitement and adventure to a young boy who has been dealing with a cruel and vicious disease. We thank you for making him smile ear to ear.you are all angels on earth.Thank you for caring so much about others.

Dottie Engler -- Dream Flyer Parent

We are so grateful that in today’s world our Jackie is more accepted and understood than children with special needs have been in the past. But we had never thought that we would be as celebrated as he was by your Above the Clouds organization. Our hearts were beyond full as we experienced the most perfectly calibrated celebration of special children as has been put together by your organization. As a person with some experience in external relations I was supremely impressed by the administrative expertise exhibited by your volunteers last Saturday. I could fill this note with admiration for the attention to detail that we experienced. Every person we spoke to was so generous with their time and good will.
