Folks, if you want to be in the drawing for the ride, you need to actually give your handle when you make your donation
Probably there are folks here who don't know what is meant by "handle"! For those of you who didn't grow up in the era of CB radio, handle == username.

I'll also reiterate the deadline, since I had to dig through the second post to find it:
The deadline for raffle donations will be 4pm PST September 10.

Obviously donations to the Dahl Scholarship fund are welcome after that time but they won't be eligible for the raffle.

After Capt Dahl lost his life on September 11th, his wife Sandy and friends started a scholarship in his name to honor his memory and love of flying. The scholarships go to young men and women interested in an aviation career. They have to be in an accredited college flight program. This past May we gave out $18,000 to 12 students.

If anyone has any questions I will be more than happy to answer them.

Dahl Fund History

On Sept 11th 2001 I lost my best friend...Jason Dahl Captain of flight 93.

His wife Sandy chose to give back to the aviation community that they both loved so very much.

In late 2001 I had the honor of sitting at a kitchen table as five of us including Sandy. started a small pilot scholarship. In 2002 we gave one
$1,500 award.

In May of this year we gave $18,000 away in an ongoing National program.

At this years awards dinner Sandy whispered that this is what she always hoped for. Four of our winners were able to fly in on my passes.


We lost Sandy less than two weeks later. Of the remaining 16 Board members not one of has given up her vision.

Your kindness and generosity fuels our resolve. The future of aviation.

From My Heart,

David Dosch
President Captain Jason Dahl Scholarship Fund

check with your employer to see if they do matching donations and, if so, whether your donation to dahlfund will qualify for a match.

Could use blogger help

If anyone has a friend that is a blogger we would appreciate your help getting the information out on the Capt Jason Dahl Scholarship. If they are not interested in a raffle ticket they can make a symbolic donation of $11. It all goes into the total.

You can PM me if you need additional information.

$380 from $1K and $5K match fulfillment
We are now $380 from raising $12K for the Dahl Foundation, done thru a combination of pshuang's $1K challenge, then another FTer's $5K challenge and $5621 given by many of you.

We then have a SECOND $5K match. This is also an anonymous giver, someone with single digit posts on FT, yet who is a regular reader and who was impacted by 9/11. IF WE MEET the 2nd match, we will raise $22K for the Dahl fund. The Radial Velocity team will give a SECOND ride on their plane, to be taken the same day as the first winner.

Let's go, TEAM FLYERTALK!


If you have a blog, blog about it. If you are on Facebook, post a link to this thread. Let's raise money in Captain Jason Dahl's name and help the next generation of pilots.

$1K and $5K match have been met! A generous FTer gave $500 yesterday to move us past the $12K total mark. Not only has the Dahl foundation benefited, but this means the first ride and the Reno Air Race package will be given out.

We now start work on the next $5K match. If we succeed in raising this by the FT dinner on Sept 10, a second ride will be given and the Dahl foundation will have a record amount of money for scholarships.

If you have a blog, blog about it. If you are on Facebook, post a link to this thread. Let's raise money in Captain Jason Dahl's name and help the next generation of pilots.
