Mercy Flight Southeast to raffle off flight in a P-51

Stallion 51 is partnering with Mercy Flight Southeast to raffle off a chance to fly in the P-51 Mustang “Crazy Horse.”

Mercy Flight Southeast’s network of 650 volunteer pilots provides free air transportation to life-saving medical appointments for people who otherwise could not get there. While pilots donate their airplanes, fuel and flight hours to complete more than 3,000 flights each year, the non-profit organization relies on donations and fundraising to pay for support services and to keep passengers and pilots in the air.

The raffle prize features a half-day P-51 orientation experience at Stallion 51’s headquarters at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport (KISM) in Kissimmee, Florida, including:

  • Pre-flight briefing that tailors each flight to the individual’s experience, expertise and expectations;
  • preflight walk around and cockpit orientation;
  • Hands-on flight that encourages the individual to do 95% of the flying;
  • Post-flight briefing reviewing the multi-camera video that captures all of the action during the flight;
  • Photo with pilot and aircraft.

Raffle tickets are $20 each and the prize includes round-trip airfare up to $500 to Orlando.

The winner will be announced April 5, 2014, during the annual SUN ’n FUN International Fly-in and Expo held at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport (KLAL), April 1-6, 2014.

Raffle tickets can be purchased online or by calling 352-326-0761. Entrants need not be present at the drawing to win.
