Caring community partners join together to introduce Sacramento youth to an eye-opening day of endless opportunity and life-changing possibilities
On Sunday, August 7th, over 100 young people from the Sacramento region will be given an opportunity that many could only dream of. As part of a joint effort, the California Capital Airshow, Rancho Cordova Police Activities League, Sacramento Jet Center, Aerospace Museum of California, Sacramento County Airport System, SAFE Credit Union, Jelly Belly and several other caring community partners will introduce Sacramento youth to an eye-opening day of endless opportunity, inspiration and life-changing possibilities that await them. The event has been aptly named, Positive Altitude.
Statistics show that exposure to such unique and interactive experiences expand a young person’s imagination and broadens their outlook on life, as well as their view of the world. ‘Positive Altitude’ isn’t just about aviation or the thrill of flying; this event is so much more. It is about the opportunities that lie ahead if these young people are given the tools to succeed. Half the battle is exposing children to life beyond their neighborhood, the latest gang, or their family legacy. With this unique event we hope to truly inspire these kids to strive for a better life and achieve the greatness that we all know they possess.
Student Pilot Opportunity:
Training aircraft will be on standby at Sacramento Jet Center, each with an experienced flight pilot to take five selected students on a 30 minute flight for an opportunity to get hands on experience and truly feel the thrill of flying a private aircraft! Each student pilot will receive a framed ‘First Flight’ certificate signed by the instructor pilot to keep.
