The wonderful volunteers of Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation have had the privilege of honoring over 2,000 veterans and seniors living in long-term care communities across the nation with Dream Flights since 2011.
Let me introduce to you Phase 2. A museum/hangar named AADF Legacy Airbase which will be located in Dayton, Nevada (just south of Reno). While the AADF Legacy Airbase will be a new and separate organization, in reality, it is a natural extension of what we have been doing the last five years.
The Legacy Airbase’s mission is clear and stated in six words – “A flight museum actively honoring veterans”.
To fulfill this mission we will do two things:
First, it will be a place where the legacy of the veterans, that have been Dream Flight recipients, can live on with the donation of artifacts and memorabilia from these great heroes.
Second, it will be built in the motif of a 1940s World War II army airbase. A place where veterans, on a prearranged basis, can come and relive the memories of being on an air base and receive a Dream Flight free of charge, in honor of their service and sacrifice to our country. It’s our way of saying thank you.
This effort is in the beginning stages. Below, you will see the first rendering of the proposed Legacy Airbase.
To our many supporters, Dream Flight recipients, volunteers, donors, and others who are interested, we say “thank you”. I hope that you will become as excited as we are about this new opportunity to show appreciation to the men and women who have, and continue to, sacrifice for the freedoms that we enjoy today.
