Donations to FlyQuest, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, are tax-deductible! FlyQuest needs additional funding to expand its education tracks beyond the initial Aviation Fundamentals course. No matter what level of interest you have, there are many ways you can support us:
If you shop at Amazon online, you can now choose FlyQuest Inc as your supporting charity when you begin your shopping experience by using this web link: smile.amazon.com. It’s just that simple and for eligible products, Amazon will automatically donate 0.5% of your purchase to FlyQuest. Every little bit helps us!
Annual sponsorships help FlyQuest meet our expanding operational costs and enable us to increase educational opportunities for our students. We’ve been asked by the City of Huntsville and other school systems to expand our Aviation Fundamentals course into other high schools, but do not currently have the funding or personnel to facilitate those goals. You can donate any amount you choose, but these levels have additional benefits.
FlyQuest often identifies young people who have an aptitude for aviation through our education programs, but not everyone can afford to pursue their dreams to achieve a career that meets their skills. For example, our first scholarship winner, Brandon Schrade, attended our Aviation Fundamentals home school course in 2014 and, through a generous scholarship donation from Paul Robichaux in memory of David Robichaux, he is now attending private pilot ground school training at the University of Alabama Huntsville!
Scholarship awardees are required to perform community service which is a unique way FlyQuest gives back to our community. Hours required are determined by the level of scholarship access received and agreed upon by all parties when the scholarship is presented.
