Wings for All is a “dress-rehearsal” program, designed to alleviate some of the stress that families who have a child with a disability experience when traveling by air. The program provides families with the opportunity to practice all of the steps involved with traveling by air, including entering the airport, obtaining your boarding passes, going through a security screening checkpoint, waiting at a gate, and boarding a plane. After a short, pretend flight, all ‘passengers’ deplane, and find your way to baggage claim, where a post-flight meal will be waiting for all participants.
Wings for All also gives airport, airline, Transportation Security Administration professionals and other personnel the opportunity to observe, interact and deliver their services in a structured, learning environment.
