Open Sky for Autism Takes Off on November 11

On Saturday, November 11th, Air Hollywood, the world’s largest aviation-themed entertainment studio will host its ninth Open Sky for Autism – a public service event that equips families living with Autism to manage their unique challenges experienced during air travel. Free to the public with limited seating, Open Sky for Autism allows for vital acclimation and repetition during a commercial airport and passenger flight simulation.

Founded in 2014 by Talaat Captan, CEO of Air Hollywood, the Open Sky for Autism program has helped more than 1,000 families. Organizational partners – the Transport Security Administration (TSA), REACH Services, Crew Presidential, and representatives from Spirit Airlines and additional major commercial airlines – will provide expert, hands-on assistance to ensure a safe and educational experience.

The next event is scheduled for Saturday, November 11th from 10:00am to 2:00pm, and features Airport Arrival, Check-In and Baggage Check, TSA Security Screening, Departure Lounge and Boarding, In-Flight Simulation with Turbulence, and Deplaning.

According to Captan, “Hosting this event is by far the most important thing we do at Air Hollywood. The program does more than help families acquire confidence during travel, it opens a door to new places and new experiences and all the wonderful sensations that come with it – freedom, recreation, adventure, culture. There really is no substitute for traveling the world, and the most rewarding aspect of Open Sky for Autism is knowing that we’ve unlocked this opportunity for these special families.”
