Our Mission

Helping our allies creating a new "you".

Recognizing the United States has a tremendous shortage of pilots affecting everything from commercial  travel to essential supply chains, the U Foundation assists American-trained fighter jet and helicopter pilots from Afghanistan with the many challenges of resettling in a new country.

The U Foundation recognizes transition to a new country and culture is hard. Our goal is speed to market. We provide families with food, clothing, and living accommodations, while the pilot continues an FAA certified career path to enter the commercial aviation workforce.
