Appleton International Airport is holding their second Wings for Autism event of the year tomorrow.
It’s an opportunity for those with autism to experience what it’s like to take a flight in a controlled environment.
Airport director Abe Weber says about 60 families are signed up for tomorrow’s event. He says they will do everything from going through security, boarding the plane, and taking off and landing.
Weber says they continue to host Wings for Autism because of the positive response from families who thought they could never fly.
He says the event helps alleviate some of the stress people with disabilities and their families experience.
