UPCOMING EVENT: 

Wings for Autism®/Wings for All™ are airport “rehearsals” specially designed for individuals with autism spectrum disorders and individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. The programs are designed to alleviate the stress that families who have a child with autism or intellectual/developmental disabilities experience when flying. It provides families the opportunity to practice entering the airport, obtaining boarding passes, going through security and boarding a plane. Airport, airline, Transportation Security Administration professionals, and other personnel also have the opportunity to observe, interact, and deliver their services in a structured learning environment.

The Arc of Buncombe, Allegiant Airlines and Worldwide Flight Services are teaming up to host a Wings for Autism® event at Asheville Regional Airport on February 11, 2017! This event would not be possible without the support of Asheville Regional Airport’s staff and TSA. We hope that you’re able to join us for a day of fun and learning!
