Join us for 2022 Wings For All® on October 15th, 2022!

In partnership with Birmingham Shuttlesworth International Airport, Southwest, and TSA, The Arc of Central Alabama is proud to present Wings for All 2022. Wings for All is a nationwide program geared toward helping individuals with disabilities and their families acclimate to the flying experience. During this experience, families take a “test-run” at checking in, receiving a boarding pass, going through security, finding a gate, and loading a plane.  Once on the plane, passengers will sit through real safety procedures and snack service.

Please note: Due to liability issues, the plane will NOT taxi the runway.
