Legacy Lift, Future Thrust…
One Thousand - One Hundred Campaign
FRED MEYER REWARDS PROGRAM
We are looking for 1000 individuals and 100 companies to fund our methodology
Engage in aerospace industry
Expose to flight environment
Educate in pilot knowledge
Empower with finances
RTH opens the eyes of youths! We give them a glimpse of those that have flown before them and a kaleidoscope of possible futures to explore. We feed those that are hungry for knowledge and water those that are thirsty for experience. We equip young minds to make educated choices about their own lives. We use aviation to provide practical applications of STEM and empower those that want to pursue an aerospace career or hobby. We firmly believe, no matter what they choose to do with their lives, having some pilot knowledge will make them better.
RTH continues to provide services through the pandemic, and we need your help funding a year-around youth program, the operation of two aviation camps, the execution of Flight Lessons for Youth and tuition for the BPA Summer Flight Academy.
Help us diversify the aerospace industry. One thousand individuals giving $100 gets us half way. One hundred companies giving $1000 gets us across the finish line. Be in the number… Stand and be counted.
Track Record of Success:
Since 23 November 2013, RTH has touched the lives of over 6000 youths, provided over 1300 discovery flights, and invested over $500,000 in flight training. In total, RTH has awarded 17 college scholarships, contributed to 39 pilot certificates and ratings and is sponsoring over a dozen more student pilots in the pipeline. Program accomplishments include 67 students coached in STEM challenges, 20 students sponsored at out-of-state STEM camps, 13 students sponsored at the BPA "les Morris" Summer Flight Academy, and 59 cadets have experienced Red-Tailed Hawks FLY.
RTH has some exciting next steps to help us continue to pioneer and lead this critical work, and we need your help! In order to achieve our 5-years Horizon Goals, which include staffing and equipping the Red-Tailed Hawks Aviation Academy with certified instructors and purchasing four airplanes, we will need to raise $200,000. By increasing our fleet and elevating our instruction, RTH will generate future revenue to support the growth and development of programs.
We are determined to be a numerator in the national equation to multiply the number of those underrepresented in the aerospace industry.
Help us make generational change.
