You don’t have to be a history buff to appreciate the legacy of the P-51 Mustang. Introduced in 1940 to provide air protection during bombing missions, the Mustang was a formidable foe to the enemy while being an Allied pilot’s dream to fly. The dream to fly the iconic pane could soon be yours. The drawing is only a month away.
Angel Flight Southeast’s network of 700 volunteer pilots provides free air transportation to life-saving medical appointments for people who otherwise could not get there. While pilots donate their airplanes, fuel and flight hours to complete more than 3,000 flights each year, the non-profit organization is reliant on donations and fundraising to pay for the support services to keep passengers and pilots in the air.
The Raffle prize includes a half-day P-51 orientation experience at Stallion 51’s headquarters at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport (KISM) in Kissimmee, Florida:
- Pre-flight briefing that tailors each flight to the individual’s experience, expertise and expectations; preflight walk around and cockpit orientation;
- Hands-on flight that encourages the individual to do 95% of the flying;
- Post-flight briefing reviewing the recorded video that captures all the action during the flight;
- Photo with pilot and aircraft.
Individual raffle tickets are $20 each, six for $100 or 13 for $200. The prize includes round trip airfare up to $500 to Orlando. The winner will be announced on Monday, September 21, 2020 at the Stallion 51’s headquarters at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport (KISM) in Kissimmee, Florida.
