Carson based foundation honors corporate sponsor

Carson City-based Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation’s primary sponsor, Sport Clips Haircuts, a sports-themed haircutting franchise, has helped fund nearly 2,000 flights for senior military veterans.

Last month at the Franchise Education and Research Foundation’s annual Franchising Gives Back Awards, Sport Clips was honored with the Support Our Veterans Award for its continued support of Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation.

Ageless Aviation is a nonprofit that honors senior military veterans with the thrill of flight in one of three fully restored Boeing Stearman bi-planes, the same aircraft used to train military pilots during World War II.

Sport Clips’ employees also volunteer at AADF events. The organization also contributed funds to support the purchase of a fourth Stearman biplane, called the “Spirit of San Antonio,” which will serve the growing number of senior military veterans living in the southwest United States.
