  • What can you conceive more silly and extravagant than to suppose a man racking his brains, and studying night and day how to fly?

    — William Law, 'A Serious Call to a Devout and Holly Life XI,' 1728

  • I confess that in 1901, I said to my brother Orville that man would not fly for fifty years. . . . Ever since, I have distrusted myself and avoided all predictions.

    — Wilbur Wright, in a speech to the Aero Club of France, 5 November 1908

  • There is no hope for the fanciful idea of reaching the Moon because of insurmountable barriers to escaping the earth's gravity.

    — Dr. F. R. Moulton, University of Chicago astronomer, 1932.

  • The Youth Aviation Adventure Program (YAA) was founded in Columbus, Ohio in 1997 by Dan Kiser and Steve Wathen.

  • Each program typically attracts 150-200 participants.

  • Currently, YAA has over one hundred pilot and other adult volunteers.

  • Kids spend about twenty minutes at each of the nine stations where they participate in discussions and activities.

  • YAA program as a modular, inexpensive, repeatable system that can be transplanted and duplicated anywhere.
