Ageless Aviation Dreams is a non-profit organization built on the philosophy of “giving back to those who have given”. They recognize seniors and veterans living in long-term care communities – helping them fulfill their dream of flying.
William Geiger fought for our country in World War II. He was up in a 1939 PT-17 plane on Friday, all thanks to Ageless Aviation Dreams.
One of the organizers of the organization, Paul Bodenhamer, says their main focus is supporting and honoring those who served our country.
“This group of individuals never asked for anything when they came back from World War II or Korea,” says Bodenhamer, “all they asked for was a job.”
For Francis Bauer, being able to see the amazing scenery made this flight even better.
“It was absolutely terrific,” says Bauer, “I didn’t think the foliage was as beautiful as it really is, just … marvelous.”
While the day and the flight are great memories for the veterans, everyone attending gets something out of it.
For these veterans, getting the chance to relive part of their past is something they’ll never forget.
