Able Flight Receives Grant from
Wounded Warrior Project

Able Flight pilot and wounded veteran Adam Kisielewski

Able Flight is honored to announce that we have been selected as a 2013 Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) grant recipient. The WWP Grants Program bridges gaps in care and services to post-9/11 injured service members by supporting organizations like us that provide high-quality, high-touch, unique programming in remote or underserved regions.

Through teamwork and collaboration, this grant will enhance our ability to support post-9/11 injured service members and foster healthy readjustment to civilian life through programmatic activities aimed at providing intensive flight training or aviation career training for wounded veterans. For more information, and a full list of WWP grant recipients, please visit: 2013 Grant Recipients
