Let's Go Flying

We host FREE "Let's Go Flying" events for people with disabilities and wounded veterans. Volunteer pilots bring their planes and give free airplane rides.  Wheelchairs are left on the ground while people fly high above the earth. Ground activities include wheelchair basketball, arts and crafts, food, and friendship.  A great time is had by all!  

Airplane Hand Controls

Man always dreamed of flying, and 100 years ago the dream came true. Three years ago it was taken away from people with lower spinal cord injuries when the production of Union hand controls stopped in the United States. Operation PROP has obtained the rights to produce them again,  so the dream can once again be a reality for all.  

Operation PROP (People Reaching Outrageous Potential) is a non-profit committed to empowering people with disabilities and wounded veterans to achieve outrageous potential through the joy of flight. Flying in a plane far above the earth is magical, and the experience can inspire people to achieve possibilities in ways they never before thought possible.

Our Mission

The Lives We Impact

Linwood Nooe

Founder, Operation PROP

Welcome to Option PROP!  We have adopted Amelia Earhart's philosophy, "Never interrupt someone doing what you said couldn't be done."  We want people to see that a disability does not have to stop them from enjoying a full life. Our flying events inspire people to believe that anything is possible. 

​Please take a few minutes and watch the short YouTube video to the right.  It will give you a good feel for an Operation PROP flying event and how we help people with disabilities and our wounded veterans achieve outrageous potential.

Recently we acquired the rights to manufacture airplane hand controls, so people with lower spinal cord injuries can earn their pilot's license.  Send me an email; I would love to tell you more.  

Thanks for checking us out.
