ACS support childrens' charity Dreamflight
Today marks the 86th Anniversary of the day Charles Lindbergh took off from Roosevelt Field on Long Island New York to fly directly to Paris, winning the $25,000 Orteig Prize by becoming the first man to fly across the Atlantic solo. Whilst Lindbergh was not actually the first man to cross the Atlantic, his famous journey inspired generations of aviators and many will argue that it changed the way people viewed aviation.
Air Charter Service is proud to be supporting Dreamflight for the second year running.
Founded in 1987, Dreamflight are a UK childrens’ charity that aims to improve young lives. Each year, departing from London Heathrow Airport, Dreamflight take 192 seriously ill and disabled children, without their parents, on the holiday of a lifetime to Orlando, Florida. Accompanied by team of medical carers, the children board a chartered Boeing 747 to spend 10 unforgettable and exciting days having lots of fun and importantly, gaining independence. Due to the need for the kids to be cared for 24/7, having the chance to go on this holiday is an opportunity like no other.
The next Dreamflight holiday takes place from 19-29th October 2013. Please visit the Dreamflight website to learn more about their good work.
