Aiming High - the 3rd Lyoness Children's Flight Day in Graz

For the third time the Lyoness Children's Flight Day in Graz was launched under the slogan "Aiming High". The event was organised by the Lyoness Child & Family Europe Association.

 More than 300 children and adolescents in the care of social services or who are housed in social institutions were given the opportunity to experience a scenic flight over Graz and the surrounding area. This year's event was set up at the Austrian Aviation Museum in Feldkirchen.On the 20th September 2014 more than 300 children and adolescents aged 5-15 years arrived here to experience their dream of flying.

50 volunteers helped out by staging fun and games activities to create a nice day for the children in addition to their flight. Activities ranged from painting and craft stalls to a bouncy castle, rodeo riding, and tours around the Aviation Museum. Special programme highlights for young and old were the presentation of the police dog unit and the fire brigade, a visit to the ÖAMTC emergency helicopters, and the autograph session of SK Sturm legends Markus Schopp and Hannes Mayr.

The aim of this event was to provide a break for children and adolescents in the care of Styrian social service institutions, as well as to let them see the world from a different view through the scenic flight.
