Get Ready For The Long Haul!
LONGEST FLIGHT LEG AHEAD!

We honor and name this special flight leg for Air Service Hawaii – your support is appreciated!

Shaesta and her co-pilot, Charlie (the teddy bear), are getting ready for the longest leg of the mission. They will soon be crossing the rest of the Pacific Ocean to the next stop in California. The trip will be over 2,000 nautical miles and take 14-16 hours. It takes extensive planning and work to prepare for this long haul but Shaesta is ready! The last month of our Global Flight For STEM will take place throughout the contiguous U.S. where Shaesta will continue inspiring the next generation at the final stops on her journey.

Christmas in Summer?
Thank you Pago Pago!
Dreams Soar would like to thank everyone who supported Shaesta’s stay in Pago Pago, American Samoa. A special thanks goes out to David Vaeafe, Executive Director of the American Samoa Visitors Bureau, for going above and beyond with his help on lodging, meals, and transportation.

Thank you for making dreams soar!

Shaesta Back on U.S. Soil
Shaesta experienced Hawaiian hospitality upon her arrival in Honolulu! Air Service Hawaii, the state’s friendliest FBO since 1948, lived up to their reputation with stellar support. Shaesta was greeted by first class line service technicians and customer service representatives after a long 1253 nautical mile and nine hour flight. Dreams Soar would like to give thanks to her host, Annie Domko, and the entire team at Air Service Hawaii, especially Mi Kosasa, Jan Bodinus, and Harleigh Knoll.
