There was a very happy guy walking around Sun ‘n Fun last week. CFI and airplane owner Randy Mullinax of Texico, Ill., just found out he won King Schools’ 35th Anniversary Sweepstakes. He takes home a prize package that includes an Alaskan seaplane rating and bush flying vacation.
Rodney and his wife Jana, a student pilot herself, will travel on an all-expenses paid trip to Alaska Floats and Skis in Talkeetna where Rodney will earn his seaplane rating and also take a bush flying course. He also will receive a Redbird TD simulator, plus a KING Get-It-All Kit. Jana plans to use the kit to help her get her private pilot certificate, she said Thursday at Sun ‘n Fun.
“We can’t imagine a better winner. Rodney is a passionate pilot, airplane owner and CFI and he loves learning new things about flying,” John King said. “The course that he took that qualified him to win the sweepstakes was our High Altitude Endorsement Ground Training Course. When I asked him if he was planning on flying at high altitude soon, he said ‘No, I just like learning about this stuff.’ Fulfilling his dream of earning his seaplane rating will be an over-the-top thrill for him … and Jana will be able to accelerate her training to be a pilot with a King Private Pilot Get-It-All Kit,” added Martha. “It is a huge pleasure to help this flying couple get even more fun out of their flying.”
“King Schools has helped me succeed as a pilot from private through CFI, and beyond,” noted Rodney, “and winning the sweepstakes is a dream come true.”
