Pilots of Valor, Mentoring Youth-At-Risk

Pilots of Valor, along with The First Baptist Church of Leesburg Florida have implemented a Mentoring program directed at Children-At-Risk. Their Christian based program exposes young adults to the aviation industry through the knowledge of aircraft, the skills of flying, aviation mechanics, Air Traffic Control and many other careers that are possible to obtain. They have taken young adults into experiences that they have never, or would never normally think they could do, far beyond their everyday environment.

Utilizing the AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association), "PATH" project for study material to learn basics of airplanes and the skills of flying airplanes. Taking the same opportunity to teach morals and biblical principles of the bible, aiding to develop our Youth-At-Risk with more possible and hopeful futures. These Valor men and women go above and beyond to expose and share today’s children with both, they love for the Lord and their love of aviation.

Pilots of Valor and The First Baptist Church of Leesburg website have also gained the support of the City of Leesburg with use of facilities at the Leesburg International Airport (KLEE) in Leesburg, Florida. Follow the growth of their program by monitoring the POV (Pilots of Valor) website.
