A Different Point of View - Engage Inspire Transform

"Friend do it this way - that is, whatever you do in life, do the very best you can with both your heart and mind...When one sits in the Hoop of the People, one must be responsible because all of Creation is related. And the hurt of one is the hurt of all. And the honor of one is the honor of all. And whatever we do effects everything in the universe."


A Different Point of View

A Different Point of View (ADPOV) is a non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization whose mission is to engage, inspire and transform youth who are in danger of loosing their way by teaching them to fly. Through aviation education and mentoring, we show students a world they've never seen before!


We are taking applications for our Aviation Career Program. Students receive professional flight training, ground school, leadership training, field trips to an air traffic control tower and other aviation industries. Students meet and interact with airline captains, air traffic controllers, airport administrators, flight attendants and airplane mechanics. Sign up today as seats are limited!
