Proceeds From This Tour Help Kids Learn To Fly.

A major portion of the proceeds from this trip are directly donated to Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Museum a non-profit organization that teaches inner city kids how to fly. TAM is also our sister company and an outreach program which inspires inner city youth to stay off the streets and follow their dreams.

With TAM’s After School Program inner city kids study to become young pilots. Some of TAM’s pilots have already set WORLD RECORDS and captivated America’s attention from CNN to MSNBC to now the White House! The dollars from your sightseeing tour make a huge difference as Celebrity Helicopters is the backbone to supporting Tomorrow’s Aeronautical Musuem and this tour is one of our primary revenues.
