Help Raise Funds For Scholarship

FlyerTalk is teaming up with Radial Velocity to help support the Jason Dahl Scholarship fund. Radial Velocity races a vintage aircraft in the T-6 class at the Reno Air Races and will be providing a ride to the winner of a raffle supporting the scholarship fund if $5,000.00 is raised by September 10, 2011.

Currently, greater than 20 percent of the minimum goal of $5,000.00 has already been achieved.

This vintage aircraft is one of the few two-seat racing aircraft that can give rides. If you are the raffle winner, you will ride it at a mutually agreed upon time before the end of November in St. Louis.

In addition, the raffle is supporting a wonderful cause. Jason Dahl was at the controls as the captain of United Airlines flight 93 which crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001. His wife, Sandy, launched a scholarship fund in his name which gives financial assistance to young men and women interested in an aviation career.

This cause is so special that Denny Flanagan, a veteran pilot and captain at United Airlines, finally relented and officially joined FlyerTalk as a member — and fellow members are greeting him with the warmest of welcomes! Please welcome Capt Denny to FlyerTalk!

This is a meaningful way to commemorate the tenth anniversary of one of the worst tragedies in American history.
