Lockheed Martin has made a charitable donation to Challenge Air for Kids & Friends, an organization that works with kids with special needs, helping them gain self confidence through flight and aviation programs.

Lockheed Martin has worked with Challenge Air since 2006, including employee volunteer drives, flight service and support at Challenge Air events across the country.

“We’re proud to support an organization that opens up the world of aviation to so many kids,” said Jim Derr, Lockheed Martin flight service program director. “Our employees in Ft. Worth regularly donate their time to Challenge Air. We were happy to be able to contribute financially to the organization this year as well. We hope this funding will enable Challenge Air to continue to inspire a passion for aviation in the youth community.”
