Coast Flight Training has announced that it will donate $25 to Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego for every introductory flight lesson purchased.

Coast Flight Training believes Rady Children’s is an important asset to the community.

Coast Flight Training, San Diego’s leading flight training facility, recently announced that it will donate $25 to Rady Children’s Hospital every time someone purchases an introductory flight lesson. Rady Children’s is dedicated to excellence in care with the best equipment, finest teaching, latest technology, and most progressive research. The cost of each introductory flight lesson is $175, and each donation to Rady will help cover costs of treatments.

The team at Coast Flight Training chose Rady Children’s Hospital to make this generous charitable donation for the following reasons:

  •     Children are the future
  •     Rady Children’s doesn’t turn ANY child away for inability to cover costs
  •     The many underfunded sections of the hospital
  •     Most Coast team members are parents, making this cause dear to their hearts
  •     Rady Children’s is an important asset to the community.
