What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Veterans Vocational Training

The vocational village will be fully compliant for receipt of Chapter 31 vocational training funds and provide eligibility for disabled veterans. In addition, state funding and programs for training and rehabilitation of first responders will be available. The approach will be based on affordability with a goal towards establishing community living, and ultimately building a self-contained village for veterans.

This mission conducts a fly-in tour of selected VA hospital Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Centers by the first paraplegic helicopter pilot.

NV3's vocational program opens the world of aviation to veterans with spinal cord injuries. There are currently no other options by which paraplegic veterans can fly helicopters. This addresses the need of veterans with SCI to regain a sense of purpose and productivity in their lives and enables them to enter or reenter the aviation community.

By conducting a fly-in at VA Spinal Units, we not only make veterans with SCI aware of the new opportunities, but they can aee a paraplegic pilot land on the hospital grounds, get out of a sleek helicopter, into a wheelchair and join them to talk about possibilities in aviation that they may not realize were open to them.

Population(s) Served

This mission is designed to draw worldwide attention to the plight of veterans, veteran suicides, and to the vision of NV3, by generating public awareness through the first paraplegic flight around the world in a helicopter by Stewart McQuillan (and the first circumnavigation by a dog in the air - Stewart's service dog, King).
