Galaxy FBO was proud to host the Challenge Air Fly Day at the Lone Star Executive Airport on Saturday, October 19th. Twenty-four pilots donated their time & their aircraft to fly more than a hundred special needs kids, who had the opportunity to “solo” fly the aircraft with their family member aboard.
Galaxy FBO would like to thank all those who volunteered for the Challenge Air Fly Day.
