National Flight Leg Partner: David Robertson
The portion of Shaesta’s flight to Austin, Tx. from Deer Valley, Az. is dedicated to David Robertson, who continues his generosity of Dreams Soar along our journey, and even as we launch the next chapter!
National Flight Leg Partner: Continental Motors
As Shaesta completed one of the final legs of her global solo flight, this portion of her flight, BTR to DAB, is dedicated to the Continental Motors Group, who’ve been a great supporter and partner of our program since our launch! From their engine course, to their IO-550 engine, their generosity literally propelled this mission forward and kept Shaesta in the air before, during and post global solo flight.

National Flight Leg Partner: Guy & MaryJo Smith

The FINAL leg of this global solo flight is dedicated to Guy & MaryJo Smith, both mentors to Shaesta and one of the first people she shared her dream to fly around the world! Thank you for helping us inspire the next generation of STEM & aviation professionals!
Thank you Cutter Aviation!
The Dreams Soar team sends a big thank you to Cutter Aviation at KDVT Phoenix Deer Valley Airport.

Support at NBAA-BACE with AEM Group: New Partnership and Friendship to Showcase
On behalf of the entire Dreams Soar team, we would like to thank AEM Group for not only polishing and grooming our ‘show ready’ bonanza during BACE, they also covered our needs for the static display! “We are not only impressed by Dreams Soar’s achievements and efforts within the industry, we have a strong belief in their mission to inspire women and help build the next generation of STEM professionals.  As we all know, careers built around the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines have been male-dominated in the past.  We support Dreams Soar in evening out the scales,” expressed the AEM team.

AEM Group is the largest ground support equipment supplier, servicing more events worldwide than any other GSE provider. AEM also provides aircraft detailing for companies who put their planes on display at conventions just like NBAA-BACE’s. Their team does an exceptional job and we are excited to show our followers what they’ve pulled together for BACE 2017!  As our newest partner to Dreams Soar, thank you AEM team, specifically Tyler Harper and Ulrich Koch.

Daily Dose of STEM
Dean Kamen, president of DEKA Research and Development Corporation, wants to shine light on kids getting into STEM careers. Kamen feels as though society glorifies sports and entertainment too much, therefore he decided to make a change. About 25 years ago, Kamen created a non-profit called FIRST which combines sports and team building techniques with STEM skills. In 2016, he proposed to have 157 teams from 157 countries to join in the camp in order to get youth excited and passionate about these careers. He reached his goal and held the camp at Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. with exactly 157 teams from 157 countries.
