LZ Wings for Heroes.
We're takin' her up.
Call Nick: 815-968-1040
We're all set for takeoff so give us a call to see how you can get onboard. Get ready to fasten your seatbelt and see what LZ Wings for Heroes is all about.
Most of our war veterans have flown in a helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft while in the military.
This program is for all war veterans. It includes sharing time on the ground and in the air.
Remember when you were a kid and you looked up at the sky and you wished you could fly like a bird?
Well, that time has come. Now you can enjoy the freedom of flying and the good feelings that come with it while sharing the experience with fellow war veterans.
Flight is a moving experience that brings light and spirit to the darkest times. Free as a bird, flying above it all.
The trust and respect these veterans have for one another plays a huge part in the success of what we hope to accomplish with the LZ Wings for Heroes program. It’s Vets helping Vets.
The LZ Wings for Heroes will be run by war veterans holding a flight instructor licence or a commercial pilot license. The basic program will run for 30 days and can be extended as needed. In sharing flight with a brother veteran, it can bring a healing to both war veterans and give a sense of peace and freedom from the wounds of war.
