RFF Fall 2014 Flight Event!
On 14 September, we conducted our 2014 Fall Flight Event at Highland Winet Airport, in conjunction with Ticket 2 Success, Inc. and the St. Louis Soaring Association.
Looking forward to flight!
RFF CEO James Samuel and Ms. A. Dollison anticipate fair skies!
Let’s get up there, into the rarified air!
Mr. D. Voland has completed his pre-flight checks and is self-assured about his forthcoming flight experience!
Ms. A. Hawes and Ms. A. Dollison inspect their aircraft before flight, with all the poise, coolness and certainty in the world. Incredible!
Just as I thought: Perfect!
Ms. A. Hawes has her pre-flight sureness re-affirmed by an awesome inflight experience! She found her element in the sky! Who knew? Now SHE does!!
Lots of fun requires lots of work.
The newest RFF class puts in the necessary work of moving gliders, walking wingtips, pulling tow planes and more, as required. Great job, team!
I’ve got this! No problem.
Mr. A. Faison has no issues controlling, steering and flying the high-performance glider.
Helicopter?!? Yep, we can fly that, too! Soon . . .
Members of all four RFF 2014 classes took part in this event, as flyers or ground/moral support, and they are represented here! How perfect that a helicopter would stop by the airfield, as rotary-winged flight is certainly in RFF’s future! What a great omen!
RFF Summer 2014 Flight Event!
On 26 July, we conducted our 2014 Spring Flight Event at Highland Winet Airport, in conjunction with Ticket 2 Success, Inc. and the St. Louis Soaring Association.
Prepared to conquer the sky!
RFF CEO James Samuel and Mr. D. Monahan are ready to take to the skies!

Getting ready to launch!
RFF CEO James Samuel and Mr. T. Fox are excited about getting aloft, as they complete their pre-flight checks. Time to finish belting up!
Two thumbs up!!
Ms. J. Sullivan is doubly excited to experience soaring, as Master CFI Mel Burkart completes their pre-flight checks!
Let’s do it!
RFF CEO James Samuel and Mr. A. Robson are eager to soar, as they await their tow plane!
Ready to climb!
Mr. D. Hale and St. Louis Soaring Association Flight Instructor Jerry Bernatz are all smiles as they prepare to gain a few thousand feet in altitude!
Flew a sailplane – CHECK! Next challenge!?
The newest RFF class, the “Super Six,” enjoy their day’s accomplishment! They are joined by two supporting members of RFF’s “First Five” and one supporting member of RFF’s “Fierce Four!” Not pictured are Mr. D. Monahan and Mr. A. Robson.

All strapped in!!

RFF Officially Launched!
On 1 Jan 2014, we launched our flying operations, taking to the skies at Highland Winet Airport, in conjunction with Ticket 2 Success, Inc. and the St. Louis Soaring Association.
The RFF First Five (F5)!
Our First Five (or “F5″ as they prefer to be called) youth started their new year with exposure to powered and glider aircraft, FAA Certified Flight Instruction and newfound confidence!
RFF’s Very First Student!
Ms. A. Fipps prepares to take flight, literally and metaphorically! The first student to fly with RFF, Ms. Fipps was all smiles.
First Flight Takeoff!
RFF’s vision is to get “Kids of all colors into the skies of all states.” Ms. Fipps and the rest of the RFF First 5 are the first instantiation of our vision. We’ve taken off, and we’re climbing high!
