Fly the P-51 Mustang The Little Witch!
What pilot doesn’t fantasize about being at the controls of a P-51 Mustang, yanking, banking, looping, and rolling through the sky like a WWII ace, hearing the growl of the Rolls Royce Merlin engine as you pull some Gs? Your chance to turn fantasy into reality is here thanks to the wonderful generosity of Jim Goodwin, owner of the two-seat Mustang known as The Little Witch!
The Little Witch is a P-51TF Mustang with dual controls, managed and operated by Stallion 51, who will provide your one-hour orientation flight from their base in Kissimmee, FL. Start your adventure with a preflight briefing, where your mission profile will be created based on your input and experience. Next, strap into the cockpit of a beautifully restored machine where you will do the majority of the flying—from basic maneuvering to high performance, high speed aerobatics. Your amazing experience will be added to your logbook during a post-flight briefing that will include a review of video shot during the flight by a state-of-the-art, on board camera system.
Only 2,000 tickets will be sold, so the odds of winning this incredible flight, valued at $3250, are pretty good. The drawing will be held at noon on Saturday, March 31, 2012, during Sun ‘n Fun in Lakeland, FL, just a short drive from Stallion 51 headquarters. You do not have to be present to win.
Speaking of winning, this opportunity presents a win-win for everyone involved. While you are vying for a chance to fulfill your fighter pilot fantasy, your donation will help the non-profit Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) to achieve its Vision and Mission objectives of creating a safer aviation environment through enhanced education.
Go to SAFE’s online store and purchase your ticket(s) for a chance to win the flight of a lifetime!
