The Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) has launched a fundraising campaign that offers donors a shot at an introductory flight in the dual-control P-51TF Mustang known as “The Little Witch.” Valued at $3,250, the session includes two hours of pre- and post-flight briefings, plus one hour in the aircraft with a Stallion 51 instructor.
According to SAFE Executive Director Doug Stewart, “We are extremely grateful to ‘The Little Witch’ owner Jim Goodwin for offering his beautifully restored aircraft to us for this campaign, and to the wonderful folks at Stallion 51.”
The winning ticket will be selected at random on Saturday, March 31, 2012, during Sun ‘n Fun in Lakeland, Fla. The winner will not only help create the flight’s mission profile, but will also be given the opportunity to do most of the flying. A maximum of 2,000 tickets will be issued for donations of $20 per ticket. Tickets are available exclusively through the SAFE website.
SAFE represents nearly 700 of the industry’s top aviation educators in 49 states and nine foreign countries. The organization offers a needs-based mentoring program, as well as a CFI Liability Insurance program, and is leading the Pilot Training Reform Initiative.
