2020 Pilots For Kids Fantasy Flight at MSP Airport - DELAYED

Last updated 9 months ago

Greetings All!

I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe during these times of COVID that hopefully will be moving on soon and getting better for us all. I'm sorry to say that because of the current state of affairs with the ongoing pandemic and financial situations at Delta and many other airlines, businesses and more, we will NOT be holding a Fantasy Flight to the North Pole at MSP Airport this year as we have done in the past. And while its sad to see a break in this long tradition that spans over 30 years at MSP, the good news is we WILL return stronger and better for an event many of us have come to love next year for the holidays in 2021 hopefully.

In in interim, I am researching a few ideas where we could still possibly do an event to benefit a children's aid organization or hospital and will let you know more details as they form. Also, because the next few months of November and December may not be the best time to plan an event as cold and flu season kicks in to higher gear, I'm looking at instead doing something early next year of 2021 in late Winter/early Spring possibly.

Thank you all for your past support and willingness to volunteer for these great causes and events. And even though we won't be getting together this December, the need for financial support continues and giving now will help us put on an even better event together in the future. So please consider donating online now and directing your tax deductible donation to our MSP group at “MSP – Minneapolis, MN (Coordinator: Rossing)” on the donation direction drop down tab.

Thank you again for all your support and help both past and present. May you and your family and friends enjoy a wonderful holiday together, even if that means doing so virtually or more "socially distanced" this year. And don't worry because as the scriptures say "this too shall pass!"

Cheers,

Chris

30th Annual PFK Fantasy Flight to the North Pole at MSP An Outstanding Success!

Last updated 9 months ago

On Saturday, 07 December 2019 several volunteers including Delta pilots, flight attendants others helped to make a difference in the lives of foster kids and families from the Minnesota Children’s Home Society and Lutheran Social Services at the 30th Annual Pilots For Kids Fantasy Flight to the North Pole held at MSP airport.
Over 200 foster kids and families came to MSP and experienced some great food, games and entertainment including appearances by local sports mascots such as Goldy Gopher (MN Gophers), Viktor the Viking (MN Vikings) and T.C. Bear (MN Twins). In addition, there were other fun activities including face painting, beading, a candy fishing booth and hands-on science activities presented by the Science Museum of Minnesota as well as a cryogenics demonstration by the 3M Visiting Wizards.
The highlight of the day however was when guests boarded a Delta aircraft for a “flight” to the North Pole that took them on a trip around the airport before arriving back at the gate about 45 minutes later where they then found an area that has been magically transformed into the North Pole and where Santa himself was waiting to greet them.
Overall it was a wonderful day that helped not only the guests but also volunteers embrace and get in to the holiday spirit early.
