FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - You may know it as “Wings for Autism”. It's “Wings for All” now, and it's all about making the flying experience inclusive for people with disabilities.
"It's important for the families to get a chance to practice, but it also gives the airline and airport staff a chance to practice. People with disabilities, they have a little bit of a different challenge. They may have sensory issues. they may have communication problems. It gives the airport staff the TSA staff just the chance to practice and meet some different people, and have that experience in their back pocket for when it happens," Janet Schutte with Easterseals Arc said.
This event is in its third year with over 100 people participating. Allegiant Air provides the plane.
Everyone participating goes through TSA and boards the plane to get the full effect of what it would be like.
