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.

We need your help!  RTH has an annual budget of $90,000 to run a year-around youth program, operate two aviation camps, execute Flight Lessons for Youth and provide tuition for the BPA Summer Flight Academy. 

Our strategy to manage long-term costs and establish more control of our programs is to acquire airplanes and actively recruit and train more CFI.  This will require an initial $200,000 investment in airplanes and flight training that will ultimately provide streams of revenue for RTH.   Please invest in RTH.

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 2013, RTH has touched the lives of over 3000 youths, provided over 875 discovery flights and invested over $275,000 in flight training.  RTH sponsored 11 student pilots at the BPA “Les Morris” Summer Flight Academy, and 42 cadets in the Red-Tailed Hawks FLY program.  In total, RTH has contributed to 18 pilot certifications and ratings and is sponsoring ten more student pilots in the pipeline.

RTH continues to provide services through the pandemic, but the economic environment in the wake of COVID-19 is challenging our ability to fundraise.

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.
