The Check-6 Pilot for a Day Program


The Check-6 Foundation supports the children and families that have been selected for the Pilot for a Day Program that is conducted at Joint Base Andrews.


Twice a year, a child is selected by the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC and is invited to become a “pilot” for a day. The event itself is comprised of a day full of activities revolving around the child’s dream and interest in aviation.


The foundation’s goal is to present each Pilot for a Day child with a Check-6 experience of a lifetime!  This is not only for the day, but the child and family are  "WINGMEN FOR LIFE!". The event may include:


Flight Suit

Flight Simulation

Tour of a KC-135 Stratotanker

Tour of a F-16 Viper

Visit to a Air Traffic Control Tower

Lunch aboard a C-40

Support a pilot
