WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio --
The 445th Airlift Wing hosted more than 180 students ages 14-18 and their chaperons visited during their visit to the wing July 22, 2015 as part of the 16th Annual Delta Airlines sponsored Dream Flight program.

Delta Airlines and the Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals flew the young aviation enthusiasts from Atlanta, Georgia, to Dayton, Ohio. Delta co-sponsors OBAP's Aviation Career Education camp and Flight Line summer programs for teenagers who have an interest in pursuing careers in aviation. The focus of the program is to teach students aviation history, aerodynamics, meteorology, navigation and flight simulator orientation with qualified flight instructors. Select graduates from ACE Camp are invited back the following year to participate in Flight Line, an in-depth program that focuses specifically on pilot training, including allowing students to perform solo flights during their week-long training.

While at Wright-Patt, the group visited with Airmen from the 445th AW then visited the National Museum of the United States Air Force.

While at the 445th, the aviation enthusiasts met with crewmembers assigned to the 89th Airlift Squadron while touring C-17 Globemaster III, participated in demonstrations with the 445th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron, 445th Security Forces Squadron and had the opportunity to try on personal protective gear from the 445th Civil Engineer Squadron.
