If you’re looking for a little inspiration, below are a few words from the FAI.
“Have you ever sat in class, looked out the window, and wondered what it would be like to fly? If so, you are not alone! Teachers might not always like it, but something about looking at the sky calls us to daydream about what is possible.
“Orange embers floating above a campfire do the same, and who has not been a little envious seeing a hawk soar across the sky? Inside all of us, a dream to fly is just waiting for the chance to come to life.
“Each achievement in flight has started with a dream. Along the way, the next generation of aviation enthusiast have built their dreams on the works of those who came before.
“Now, it’s your turn. Where ever your imagination takes you when you look to the clouds, it’s time to pick up your favourite art supplies and share your dream to fly!”
