United States National Tour
Think Global Flight (TGF) National Tour engaged over 10,000 students for a greater awareness on the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.) careers.
During this national flight, TGF Winds Aloft curricula was beta tested throughout the United States, assuring worldwide success. This curricula was recognized by the FAA and Department of Education for a quality program providing real world application for learning.
TGF maximized the reach and scope of each donor through this widely-recognized value-driven adventure. Donors were honored through representation that included logos and hyperlinks on the web site, social media, and promotional materials. Donors were provided additional marketing exposure through crew member and supporter, Apollo Astronaut Dr. Buzz Aldrin. In addition, TGF’s advisory council consists of 11 industry leaders from across the globe.
Special Appreciation is due for the Donations of Think Global Flight’s National Tour airplanes, Navigator Fred, all our Volunteers, and Sponsors!
