At Goldwings, taking care of our communities is the way we do business. It is with Hawaiian values that we conduct the art of business, delivering the art of the possible, and these values guide our commitment to giving back to our islands.
Our core community programs include:
Olomana School: Goldwings has been instrumental in helping create a roadmap for this Kailua alternative-education intermediate and high school to address vulnerabilities and needs to best serve students. Most recently, we partnered with the Hawaii Foodbank to create a successful meal program. As many as 50 five-pound bags of nonperishable food items have been distributed to students each week, as well as snacks. Goldwings has also been an active supporter of workforce development activities, partnerships and speaking opportunities to enhance the school’s curriculum around trade and aviation careers.
Aviation Work-Study Program: Goldwings launched a work-study program in 2021 to provide opportunities for students interested in aviation careers. Students can learn from Goldwings mentors as they study for their pilot’s license or other aviation career. Abigail Dang, the program’s first student, completed her work-study and is working as a flight instructor as she plans to enlist in the Hawai‘i Air National Guard.
Our team is actively involved in numerous projects that impact a variety of community groups, as well as board and advisory committee participation.
