Third time lucky!
scottish_colin thank you for your continued support. Each and every one of you are making a difference. This past May we gave out 17 scholarships.

The 787 sim prize has sparked an interest and donations have picked up. We are at $3925.

New Match

Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!We just crossed $5000 and last years T-6 winner, travel and leisure, just attached a $2000 match to a parachute and tossed it out of the cockpit. Let's see if we can match this before it hits the deck(Always Navy terms from this Naval Aviator).

Sim ride is a high interest item, but a good cause in any event. I'm in!
Convinced myself this is the right thing to do, but the sim ride possibility helped.

I'm in again too! Got to ride on the Stinson last year and it was awesome - almost as good as helping out these kids who are interested in aviation. Happy to help and looking forward to the 787 sim ride!

Just made my first $100 donation to this perfectly-purposed effort named after a true American hero. This is the very least I could do to help such a great cause.

I didn't get a chance to put my FlyerTalk handle into the actual transaction - is there a quick way to get my donation matched to my handle here?

Again...best wishes on your fundraising campaign!

I just threw $100 into the pile but also did not manage to get my flyertalk handle in the transaction.

I got the email receipt confirming the transaction but the actual page never changed. Capt Denny, can you or someone else confirm the transaction and have my handle added?

Thanks

Jumping Jehoshaphat An Airforce F-16 Sim

As Naval Aviation legend, Grandpa Pettibone, would say; Jumping Jehoshaphat!!!!! What is going to happen to the Capt. Jason Dahl Scholarship next,

A F-16 simulator ride was just donated. Being a government product it cannot be raffled for cash. Therefore it will be given away. Everyone* who participates in the T-6/787 sim drawing will get one chance for the F-16 sim ride. That is if you buy $25 or $500 worth of T-6/787 sim tickets you will only get 0NE chance to the F-16 sim.

Just to let you know we currently have 38 donors in the T-6/ 787 sim ride drawing. Your chances to win are 1 in 38.

I am not going to turn away any donations to support the scholarship drive. How much better can this get!

Capt Denny

*Details are being researched if the F-16 simulator is open to non US citizens. As with the other prizes you are responsible for your own transportation and hotels.

Dudleydog73 your donation took us over $7000. We are at $7125 and now travel and leisure will put in her match which brings us to $9125.

Another piece of generosity from travel and leisure............since she won last years T-6 ride she will not include her 400 tickets in the raffle for another ride.
