The Sky’s the Limit for the VanDyken Household

Earlier this year, we hosted a Raise the Roof Auction in an airplane hangar that included a fun paper airplane contest with a pretty great prize‚Äďa private plane ride!

And the winner was none other than Cody, age 10, the grandson of the VanDyken family, our latest partner family, who’s Youth United Build house is nearing completion.

Thanks to pilot Doug Cole, who flew Cody around in his private plane, here are some photos from Cody’s experience.

He tried out an L-29, courtesy of Scott, but decided the 172 was a better fit.
