Project Pilot students receive flight training funds

Project Pilot students receive flight training funds

By AOPA ePublishing staff

AOPA Project Pilot gives student pilots the support they need to complete their flight training and mentors the chance to share their passion with those students.

A random drawing at AOPA Expo 2007 in Hartford, Conn., on Oct. 4 through 6, of AOPA Project Pilot teams who signed up on-site, provided an extra incentive for students and future pilots to fulfill their dream of learning how to fly.

AOPA gave away $2,500 for flight training to student pilot Megan Fenwick of Washington, D.C. One mentor, Robert Benda II of Centennial, Colo., was selected at random to receive a Sennheiser HMEC 460 Headset.
