Saturday, April 1, 2023, 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Harold E. White Aviation Center, One University Pkwy , Romeoville

A free flight simulation event for children and youth with disabilities

Do you have a child or adolescent with a disability who has never been on an airplane?

Join Lewis University’s Occupational Therapy Program for “Ready to Fly” on April 1 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Is your child or adolescent scared of airplanes or the airport? Maybe you’ve had a bad travel experience?  If you’re avoiding travel or worried about traveling by plane as a family, this event may help.

Ready to Fly participants will practice:

  • Packing a suitcase
  • Interacting with ticketing
  • Going through security
  • Boarding/exiting an airplane
  • Picking up their luggage

The event is free. Seating is limited.

See the Ready to Fly flyer for more details.

Reserve your boarding pass by March 29. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
