Remember the childhood dream that you could fly...
that one day you might sit in the cockpit of your very own plane? It continues to be one of the most emotive, exciting and timeless aspirations for children.
Our vision at FunFlight is that every child can fly.
FunFlight is purely volunteer-run and established to provide children touched by adversity, with joy and inspiration through the exhilaration of flight.
Last year we broke through the 9,000 FunFlight barrier and we have big plans to expand our reach so that this volunteer driven, community program can inspire many more children all over Australia.
Join us, become a FunFlight Sponsor, a Corporate Supporter or register your interest to volunteer.
National FunFlight Day 2016
On Sunday 12 November, FunFlight will again team up with the aero clubs, pilots and charities of Australia to deliver children facing adversity the flight of their life! It takes some preparation to pull off such a magical day so we are calling on all potential partners to register as soon as possible.
For families that wish to attend, you will need to contact a local, participating charity who can organise bookings. Visit the 'get involved' section of the website for more details. At FunFlight, we are here to connect children in need with our superstar FunFlight Captains and aero clubs to change the lives of those who need it most.
Thank you very much for organising the Fun Flight event. Our families who attended have let me know that they have a great time.
As you know, spending time out with their families means a lot to them when they have a child with a medical illness. Your efforts and those at the aero clubs have given our families wonderful memories .I appreciate the enormity of organising a day for aero clubs around Australia and the time you must have put into coordinating the event. It is amazing that you can coordinate it all to happen for so many charities, at so many aero clubs and for so many children and their families. A big thank you to all the aero clubs and the many volunteers who were involved.
Lynette - Heart Kids
Wanting to pass on a big thank you for the free fun flight that my two kids and I recently enjoyed.
We had a great time flying over our regular family ski spots and the kids had a blast. Thanks for making it a special day. My 2 year old son beside me in the plane has a congenital heart disease and has had a couple of bouts of open heart surgery.
A big thank you from myself especially
As a Mum with a sick child its always a joy to see them have an experience they wouldnt normally have, which makes up for some medical visits that we attend. And also a big thank you from my very happy and appreciative boys.All the staff that we dealt with at the Lilydale Airfield were helpful, friendly and fantastic. So welcoming and helpful. Steve the pilot took the boys over were we live and they were very excited to be able to see their school and completely amazed how clever Steve was to be able to do that.
Giving a child the gift of flight,costs as little as a $120 donation.
