WingsforAutismTUL

Thank you to everyone who came out to this year’s Wings for Autism PHX! Stay tuned for photos from the event.

 

Due to limited space on the airplane, a maximum of four (4) individuals are allowed per family group, including the individual(s) with disabilities and family members/support staff accompanying them to the event.

In addition, in order to serve the greatest number of families through The Arc of Arizona’s Wings for Autism program, priority is given to families that have not participated in prior years. Families that have previously attended a Wings for Autism event will be placed on a Waiting List until all families wishing to participate for the first time have been accommodated. IF YOU WISH TO REGISTER AS A REPEAT ATTENDEE, PLEASE DO SO HERE.

Wings for Autism® is coming back to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport on October 7, 2017! Join The Arc of Arizona, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and Sky Harbor on Saturday, October 7th, at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport for a “rehearsal” specially designed for individuals with autism spectrum disorders, their families and aviation professionals. Check-in begins at 5:00 p.m.

Wings for Autism is designed to alleviate some of the stress that families who have a child with autism experience when traveling by air. The program provides families with the opportunity to practice entering the airport, obtaining boarding passes, going through security, and boarding a plane. Wings for Autism also gives airport, airline, and Transportation Security Administration professionals and other personnel the opportunity to observe, interact and deliver their services in a structured, learning environment. This experience is equally useful for families that have a member with other intellectual or developmental disabilities that are concerned about the ability of their family member to travel. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Participation is limited to 260 people.
