A group of local kids spent Saturday morning checking out airplanes, meeting pilots, and flying around Anniston thanks to the Agency for Substance Abuse Prevention. 

ASAP, based in Oxford, partnered with several organizations — such as the Brock Project, the Anniston Fatherhood Initiative and the City of Anniston — to bring local youth “The Gift of Flight.” Founder of the Brock Project and pilot Omar Brock explained what the Gift of Flight program is.
