AN EXCITING UPDATE: Thanks to the loving support of Ben's friends and family, his financial needs for training are met!

Even though donations are closed, we still encourage you to read on and learn about Ben's ambitions.

Ben first became interested in aviation when he started to imagine a career in the military flying jets.

He flew a plane for the first time with Giving Kids Wings in fall of 2020. Once the COVID lockdown began to ease in 2021, he climbed right back into the cockpit – this time, a glider – and he has pursued his dreams of flight ever since.

Right now he's working toward a PPL-G (Private Pilot's License, Glider). Ben’s long-term aviation goal is to earn his CFI (Certified Flight Instructor) and ultimately fly for an international airline. He loves world travel! He also enjoys robotics.

Help Ben cover the costs of his glider education as he nears his aviation goal and continues to take his journey of hope, dedication, and empowerment!
