Veteran Transitions with Fly Through It featuring Anthony Robinson

Readjusting to life as a veteran comes with a host of practical challenges. After finding solace in learning to fly, Anthony Robinson decided to pay forward the favor to others making the transition. Thus, Fly Through It was born.

Hear about the application process, and the costs involved in getting folks their pilot’s licenses, as well as the problem of funding and raising capital to service more individuals on their journey to flight. Anthony also shares the story of his wife’s uncle, who taught him to fly and left him his pool service business, and tells us why his goal for his sons is for them to supersede his own success in life.
