Aerial Recovery conducts beginner (tier 3), intermediate (tier 2) and advanced (tier 1) training building a volunteer and staff core of highly skilled humanitarian special operators ready to be deployed when disaster strikes. Majority of the training instructors are special forces veterans. The type of training they receive are medical first aid, search and rescue, swift water rescue, aid distribution, crisis communication, etc.

Heal the heroes initiative - the purpose of the heal the heroes initiative is to provide military veterans and first responders with the opportunity to gain the healing they deserve - and likely have been searching for - during their transition from a military career to civilian life. The initiative's goals are to repurpose and re-mission veterans and first responders to be thriving forces for good in the world by transitioning their unique skill-set and extensive training into the humanitarian space. The program's vision is for veterans to be globally recognized as assets not victims.
Redemption ranch - the redemption ranch is a rescue sanctuary for ponies, horses and zebras that have been abused or mistreated by previous owners. The animals are provided safety and security, access to veterinary care, and food and clean water so that they can live out the rest of their lives in a safe and peaceful environment. The animals are cared for by trained staff who work to rehabilitate the animals who have been through neglectful or traumatic prior treatment using a variety of healing therapies. Once the animals have achieved the requisite healing they need and deserve, they are then used to provide healing to humans who have experienced trauma (such as veterans, first responders, children, domestic violence survivors, etc.) Through a variety of equine healing initiatives. The veterans and first responders who go through Aerial Recovery's heal the heroes initiative are each given the opportunity to experience healing through the equine healing initiatives of at the redemption ranch.
