Give Hope Wings – Northwest Expedition

 Give Hope Wings takes to the air again with a three-week, 12,000 km flying expedition across British Columbia, Yukon, Northwest Territories and Alaska in June and July. The crew has set a goal of raising $250,000 for Hope Air! Pilots and Volunteer Flight Crew will each raise and/or donate $25,000 in exchange for this adventure of a lifetime. The search is on for pilots and flight crew.

An anonymous donor has generously agreed to donate $50,000 to create the Give Hope Wings Adventure Flight Award for Women Who Fly. This award will allow two female pilots (or pilots in training) to join the expedition.

Click the button below to view the PDF with the full details of the award. Please forward this opportunity to any female pilots in your network that might be interested.
