Message from the co-chairs
Unbound by earlier paradigms, Exploration of Flight will be free to pursue with energy and imagination its fundamental purposes: To honor the importance of the aerospace frontier. To celebrate it as a cornerstone of our culture. To guard against complacency, and instead to inspire future generations through aerospace education. These purposes are in keeping with the longstanding Wings Over the Rockies mission statement: “To educate and inspire people of all ages about aviation and space endeavors of the past, present, and future.”
In pursuit of the mission, now is the time to build on past success. Now is the time to move ahead with plans that are visionary and bold. Indeed, plans that are big. Now is the time to make dreams come true.
Launch a Life
Human beings have always looked up, to be amazed by the stars, to marvel at birds in flight, to be awed by the forces of weather. At times over the past century, they have also looked up to intrepid pioneers who have led us into the frontier of flight, from the Wright brothers to the astronauts. Wings Over the Rockies proposes a facility to awaken the universal interest in flight that lives in us all. As a source of inspiration, Exploration of Flight will offer positive adventures without limits, experiences that existed only in dreams, possibilities for the future beyond imagination. Investing now in the Wingspan Campaign will yield a return of immeasurable value. It will put wings on dreams for young people, and help us all to reach our highest potential. For the thousands of youth who pass through its doors each year, Exploration of Flight will be a launch pad to a future with unlimited promise.
