In! (Although I'm going to have a hard time explaining to family friends and work why I will need to take time off in order to fly across the Atlantic to claim the grand prize. )

Winding down Friday night at the Perfect Pint Public House in NYC. I just checked the donations and we are at $1125. When we reach $2000 we will get a match from iluv2fly for $2000. Any other matches out there.

Pat Mike just started a link on Flyer Talk Cares. We realize not everyone can take the time off to claim the prize in Hamburg. So! Pat Mike started a "Just A Buck" program where Flyer Talkers can donate $1/month to the scholarship. Go to dahlfund.org and click the DONATE button. Select $1 and click the monthly box. With over half a million Flyer Talkers we can keep Capt Jason Dahl's memory and love of flying alive through his scholarship. Your $12 yearly turns into a symbolic $11 after paypal takes out their fee.

As FlyerTalkers, we can do the same. Just go to the dahlfund.org website and click the donate button. On the funding page, use PayPal and make a $1 donation. Check the monthly box and the Dahl Fund will receive a $12 yearly donation per Flyer Talker. If this takes off, the Dahl Fund can give out a lot more scholarships.

I've already done it.
It's a great way to give back to "our community".

Sunday evening I am in the IAH Marriott. Current total donations is at $1425. So far we have 24 donors which includes one from Bulgaria and one from Poland. It's great to see our Flyer Talkers across the Atlantic are keeping Capt. Dahl's memory and love of flying alive.

Remember at $2000 we will receive a $2000 match from iluv2fly

My Grandson Tyler and I visited this great plane at Oskosh last year. What a great flight it will be for some lucky winner! I want to pre-thank everyone who contributes and buys a chance. Your support of the Dahl Fund has enabled us to award aviation scholarships to worthy students nation-wide.

I hope to see each of you on a United Flight some day. I fly he A-320 out of Denver most every week.

Thank you all for your support.

I'll make my donation after I load my Paypal account. I'll do anything to make iluv2fly pay up. ^

Just flew an empty 747-400 from SFO to LAX. I wish I could have loaded it with Flyer Talkers.

Sadly as the President of the Dahl Fund I can't win any of these really cool plane rides.
