Every Child Can Fly


What is FunFlight?

Aero Clubs, pilots, and commercial aviation organisations host FunFlight events volunteering their time to provide deserving families with a sky-high break from their day-to-day worries.

FunFlight is a national charity, founded in 2008, that inspires and assists aeroclubs to plan and host safe and joyful events to bring light into the lives of families touched by adversity. Working with national and local charities, FunFlight events have hosted families who have a child with a disability or serious illness, where one parent is ill and families just doing it tough and in need of an uplifting experience. Read more about FunFlight’s humble beginnings or learn more about FunFlight events. If you're interested in helping bring smiles fo the faces of deserving children, you can find-out more here.

FunFlight Captains take children touched by adversity for the Flight of their Life.
