WildBlue and the Kirk family are honored to be a sponsor and supporter of Challenge Air for Kids and Friends. Challenge Air was created to change the perception of children with special needs through the gift of flight. Since 1993, Challenge Air has been committed to making a difference in the lives of children with special needs. With a network of 3,500 volunteers nationwide, this organization continues to grow through events called Fly Days.

By eliminating the belief that they are limited, the children can grow to their full potential. They are given the opportunity to find courage within themselves and build in areas where they lack self-esteem. Challenge Air provides an unforgettable growing experience that opens the door to possibilities while allowing the children to see if they can fly a plane they can do anything.  

WildBlue donates a portion of our profit to fantastic organizations like Challenge Air. In 2018 we were blessed to be able to contribute over $20,000 to such causes.
