Emily Kasinger never imagined that a Southwest Airlines Pilot would play a huge role in taking her dream on the dance floor to 30,000 feet. Helping kids dream big dreams—that’s the mission of First Officer Gary Hooyman who volunteers for Southwest’s Adopt-A-Pilot Program.
This video highlights the amazing things that happen because of our unique Adopt-A-Pilot volunteer program and that our Pilots do more than teach math and science through aviation-related activities in fifth-grade classrooms—they inspire kids to stay in school, set goals, and dream big.
