The Airpower Foundation was honored to help support Salute to the Troops Orlando 2018 along with Envoy, American Airlines, Walt Disney World, The Gary Sinise Foundation, the Tug McGraw Foundation, and USO-Metro.

Families were flown on a donated American Eagle aircraft provided by Envoy, with an all volunteer flight crew, to Orlando from Washington D.C.  This trip was also a much needed escape from the hospital, and an opportunity to spend quality family time together at the happiest place on earth!

Providing them with the ultimate experience anyone could possibly have, Disney World rolled out the red carpet, and gave them a vacation they will never forget. Each family had a private escort to take them around all the theme parks in record time!  And those long lines for the rides…  Not for our families! They were escorted to the front of each line, and were able to immediately board any ride or attraction they wanted!  They were truly treated like royalty, and created many special memories together.  The Airpower Foundation is honored to have helped make this special trip possible for them.  Much thanks to Walt Disney World for all they did to make this trip so spectacular for these families, and all of our partners who came together to make this trip possible.


We would like to sincerely thank all of our sponsors, donors, and volunteers who help support the Airpower Foundation, and Sky Ball.  

Without your generous sponsorships, donations, and all the volunteers who work so hard all year round, events such as this, and the impact they make for our service members and their families, simply would not be possible.

The American Airlines Sky Ball XVI Gala will be held on Saturday, October 27, 2018.  We will be celebrating 16 years of supporting our military through the fundraising efforts of Sky Ball, and answering the question of “Why” we do what we do, and sharing the impact we have been able to make.

Please visit for details on how you can sponsor, get tickets, and be a part of this spectacular event!  Through the fundraising efforts of Sky Ball, we are able to make trips and memories such as this, and many more possible!!  In addition to supporting our nation’s military, veterans, wounded, ill, or injured service members, their families, and the families of our fallen military heroes.  All thanks to your support!!
