10th Cancer Survivor Flight Camp for Eagle Mount

Donation protected
Join us in making a difference during our 10th Annual Big Sky Kid's Cancer Survivor Flight Camp June 24-28, 2024! Every summer, Eagle Mount and the flight school at Summit Aviation join forces for this fantastic event! The Flight Camp is a week-long pilot training camp held at the flight school headquarters at the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport. It was created to give young cancer survivors the experience of a lifetime that these amazing individuals greatly deserve.


Every year four young adult cancer survivors are chosen from Eagle Mount's Big Sky Kids' program to participate in this week-long flying adventure! The week includes one-on-one instruction with Certified Flight Instructors, over 10 hours of flight time in Summit’s state-of-the-art Diamond aircraft, ground school courses covering topics such as basic aerodynamics and cross-country flight planning, as well as behind-the-scenes tours of rarely seen areas of the airport like the traffic control tower and private hangars.

It’s all made possible only by private donations (Eagle Mount never accepts any government funding) The in-air instruction doubles as a first-class sightseeing tour of Montana, flying over breathtaking sites like the majestic Bridger Mountains and Canyon Ferry Lake near Helena.

The week culminates in a spectacular cross-country flight to Driggs, Idaho, that takes them above the famous Yellowstone National Park, where the campers witness the incredible sights of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, the Grand Prismatic Spring (displaying its full range of colors from above), the Grand Tetons, and the majestic Old Faithful Geyser!

The transformation these individuals go through during the week is amazing to witness. For some, it’s a chance at an incredible experience after stolen opportunities; for others, it’s about removing limitations and revealing new skills and abilities. No matter the journey they take, the destination is one of new-found freedom, confidence, and ability.

Thank you for helping us make this wonderful event possible!!!
