As our nation remembers those who have courageously served our country this Veteran’s Day weekend, fighter pilot veterans from Afterburner, Inc. will address more than 300 children of families who lost a loved one on 9/11 on how to create their own ‘Flight Plan For Life.’ This event will be presented by Tuesday’s Children, the non-profit family service organization founded by the family and friends of September 11 victims and will take place November 13, 2005 on the U.S.S. Intrepid in New York City.

‘Flight Plan For Life,’ presented by Afterburner, Inc. and tailored for the 10-18-year olds involved in Tuesday’s Children, will focus on creating a plan to help them rise above the tragedy that affected each of them and their families September 11, 2001. Afterburner, Inc., an international management training company, utilizes fighter pilots to teach the techniques of peak performance and how to plan for success in corporate America, as well as to today’s youth.

Kyle ‘CRUISER’ Howlin and Andrew ‘DIRTMAN’ Dingee, both former fighter pilots in the U.S. Marine Corps, will address the children and families of Tuesday’s Children.

‘I am honored to speak to this outstanding group of young adults,’ Howlin said. ‘On that fateful Tuesday morning, many of them lost a very important wingman- a mom or a dad. They need to believe they can rise above this tragedy and that they each possess the courage to live passionately and fulfill their dreams.’

Afterburner’s youth program ‘Flight Plan For Life’ teaches young adults the processes of decision- making and how to turn dreams into reality by setting goals.

‘I am proud to partner with Tuesday’s Children and share our Flight Plan For Life,’ Afterburner CEO and founder James D. Murphy said. ‘Tuesday’s Children represents the American spirit at its best and is truly making a difference in the lives of the families and children affected by 9/11.’

James ‘MURPH’ Murphy is also the author of two business management books, ‘Business is Combat,’ and ‘Flawless Execution.’ Murphy, a former fighter pilot with the U.S. Air Force, founded Afterburner in 1996 with the vision that fighter pilot tools for Flawless Execution™ can benefit corporations and today’s youth.

The ‘Flight Plan for Life’ youth presentation is being held at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City. There will be a ‘Flight Plan For Life’ presentation open to the public from 12:00- 1:30 p.m. November 13, 2005.
