John and Martha King of King Schools announced the start of their Alaskan Flying Adventure Sweepstakes during the first day of EAA AirVenture.
The winner, to be announced at Sun ‘n Fun in April 2015, will take home prizes that includes an Alaskan flying vacation for two, a seaplane rating, and the chance to take a bush flying course.
“Alaska has a special place in our hearts. Martha and I have made over 50 round-trips from San Diego to Alaska in our own airplane and we have traveled the state in airplanes both on floats and on wheels,” said John King in a press release. “This is the second time we have given this fabulous prize away, our first winner Rodney Mullinax had such a great time, we decided we just had to do it again.”
The sweepstakes is open for new entries until April 6, 2015. The official rules can be found on the King Schools website here.
