Supporting Dreams Soar Around the World Through In-flight Catering


Air Culinaire Worldwide is excited to see the initial launch of Dreams Soar journey around the world piloted by Shaesta Waiz, the first female civilian pilot from Afghanistan. Shaesta’s journey just kicked off from Daytona Beach on May 13, 2017. Her journey will cover 655nm in a 2001 Beechcraft Bonanza A36. Her first stop will be Columbus, Ohio; then she will continue to Montreal, Quebec, Canada; and from there, her journey will take her to points around the world.

We are excited about sponsoring Dreams Soar’s noble mission of inspiring the next generation of young women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) careers and aviation by providing her with healthy, balanced meals and are easy to manage in her in-flight environment. Her first meal delivered by Air Culinaire Worldwide was a Turkey Cubano Sandwich, a twist on the original Cuban Sandwich, with roasted mojo turkey, fresh greens and citrus vinaigrette. To finish her meal, she had a lovely Florida Strawberry Summer Tart. We are also supplying her with healthy snacks, like fresh fruit and energy bars, throughout her journey around the world.

Since Daytona Beach was selected as the starting point in this historical journey, here is a quick overview of what the town. The area is known for its popular spring break beaches, which you are allowed to drive on. The area is also known as a motor lover’s paradise since they host the Daytona 500 and Bike Week every year.

Daytona is known as the “Original American Beach,” and you would think that the culinary scene would be just burgers and laid-back food. The area offers many refined restaurants, such as The Cellar Restaurant, that named on Open Tables list of “The Top 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in the U.S.” and is housed in President Warren G. Harding’s Historic Home.

Everyone at Air Culinaire Worldwide would like to thank Dreams Soar and Shaesta Waiz for giving us this amazing opportunity to play an important role in supporting her mission around the world. To follow her circumnavigation, you can find updates at or  To donate, visit
