The Take Off for Kids charity event was created by Tim Keaten and Dave Powell. We are passionate about aviation and passionate about giving back to the community. Back in 2011 we decided to create an annual charity event that would combine both passions with a focus on helping out children.

After a lot of pondering and discussion, Take Off for Kids was conceived and our inaugural event was held in June 2011. The response we have received from the general aviation community each year has been remarkable. It’s a real honor for both of us to be part of this amazing event that benefits children!
