    Freedom's Wings International (FWI) is a non-profit organization run by and for people with physical disabilities. We provide the opportunity for those who are physically challenged to fly in specially adapted sailplanes, either as a passenger or as a member of the flight training program.

    • Introducing persons with disabilities to the soaring experience
    • Teaching qualified persons with disabilities to soar
    • Providing facilities for soaring to those persons with disabilities able to soar
    • Providing training for instructors, ground crew, and flying students
    • Providing a non-profit educational and fraternal organization
    • Serving as a resource and model for other organizations with similar intent
