Drawing to be held at noon on Saturday, March 31st on the Warbird Ramp

In cooperation with Stallion 51 of Kissimmee, FL, the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) is offering donors a shot at an introductory flight in the dual-control P-51TF Mustang, The LITTLE Witch. Valued at $3,250, the session includes two hours of pre- and post-flight briefings, plus one hour in the aircraft with a Stallion 51 instructor.

This year’s Sun-n-Fun also launches Stallion 51’s Silver Jubilee commemoration, with Friday, March 30th designated as “Stallion 51 Day” during the fly-in. At 1200 EDT on Saturday, March 31st, Owner and Chief Pilot of Stallion 51 Lee Lauderback will randomly select the winner of the P-51 flight on the Warbird Ramp beside The LITTLE Witch. A limited number of tickets are still available through the SAFE website. The winner will not only help to create the flight’s mission profile, but will also be given the opportunity to do most of the flying.

SAFE represents nearly 700 of the industry’s top aviation educators in 49 states and nine foreign countries. The organization offers a needs-based mentoring program as well as a premier CFI Liability Insurance program, and is leading the Pilot Training Reform Initiative. SAFE is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
