What's it like to participate in Project Pilot?

Erik Lindbergh

It's your duty to keep general aviation strong and vibrant by bringing new pilots into the aviation community. AOPA can't do it alone.

That's why we've launched the enhanced AOPA Project Pilot program. More than ever, the program is fun, easy, and rewarding. Take a moment to view an important message from Project Pilot spokesman Erik Lindbergh as he shares his personal story about the importance of mentoring student pilots.

Remember, you don't have to be a flight instructor to share your knowledge and enthusiasm for flying.

So what's it like to participate in this exciting program? Let two participants tell you in their own words. You met Gordon Durler of Waukesha, Wisconsin, and his Mentor, Trey Gordon, in the June issue of AOPA Pilot.

Now, hear how Gordon mentored Durler, through private pilot training, first as a neighbor and then long distance after Durler was transferred to New York. View a multimedia presentation about their experience.
