The goal of the Pilot for a Day program is to provide children and their families in the local community who have catastrophic illnesses a once in a lifetime opportunity; the child is issued a flight suit and visits different mission sets around base such as the Security Forces Squadron Working Dog compound, the Fire Department, and a tour of the Air Traffic Control Tower and a C-17 Globemaster III.
