The flight started on June 2nd 2008 from Greenville, SC and arrived at Philadelphia for a visit to Liberty Bell and continued to New York, for a flight over the Statue of Liberty.


This flight was symbolic flight to commemorate Freedom Flight and reiterate its message to encourage the young generation in Iran to bring about changes that seems difficult to achieve; Whether these achievements

are changing the political direction of our country, or changing personal ideology toward the goal of achieving a better future, or striving to compete athletically or technologically with the young generation of other nations.


Our goal is to set June 2nd as a day where every young Iranian focuses on the power of their ability to achieve. This phenomenon in time will change the course of our future and the faith of our nation. We are hopeful that in parallel with the June 2nd flight, our young generation rise to any challenges they believe it to be out of their reach.
