CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - "We do it year round but summer time with the longer days and better weather, it's a great activity for people to get out and try something new for them or something that they've always wanted to do," said Rising Wings Aviation Owner, Brian Parke.

Rising Wings Aviation gives you the opportunity to see the Cowboy State from the air and also learn a lifelong skill.

Parke said as the school year ended, they have seen a lot of people starting their flight training.

Parke said Rising Wings enjoys being able to show people the ropes and it doesn't matter how old you are, it's never too late or too early to learn to fly.

"Getting to see the smile on someone's face when they fly for the first time, it's something all of us look forward to," said Parke.

Parke said even before the pandemic they were taking steps to sanitize the planes and they have ramped up their efforts to keep staff and others safe during the pandemic.
