Wings receives confirmation of a $250,000 grant

January 25, 2013: Wings receives confirmation of a $250,000 grant to sponsor the launch of the Spreading Wings Teacher Flight Program from the Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust. This signature outreach initiative, based from Centennial facilities, will fly one teacher in each school along Colorado’s Front Range by 2020, eventually reaching up to 84% of Colorado’s K-12 population with award-winning aerospace education programs. Earlier in the week the Colorado Division of Aeronautics Board of Directors confirmed an additional grant of $336,000 to continue growth of educational outreach programs, including the Wings Aerospace Science Program (WASP), which has trained teachers in nearly 60 districts and charter schools in Colorado.
