Kissimmee, Florida-based Stallion 51 is partnering with Mercy Flight Southeast to raffle off a chance to fly in a Mustang while helping the Air Charity Network affiliate’s worthy mission. Stallion 51’s ‘Crazy Horse’ aircraft are dual cockpit/dual controlled Mustangs that allow aviation enthusiasts to fulfill the dream of taking the controls of this powerful iconic fighter.
Mercy Flight Southeast’s network of more than 700 volunteer pilots provides free air transportation to life-saving medical appointments for people who could otherwise not get there. While pilots donate their aircraft, fuel and flight hours to complete more than 3,000 missions each year, the non-profit organization relies on donations and fundraising to pay for support services and to keep passengers and pilots in the air.
The Raffle prize includes a half-day P-51 orientation experience at Stallion 51’s headquarters at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport (KISM):
- Pre-flight briefing that tailors each flight to the individual’s experience, expertise and expectations; preflight walk around and cockpit orientation;
- Hands-on flight that encourages the individual to do 95% of the flying;
- Post-flight debriefing reviewing the multi-camera video that captures all of the action during the flight;
- Photo with pilot and aircraft.
Raffle tickets are available for purchase at $20 each, three chances for $50 and seven chances for $100. The prize includes round trip airfare of up to $500 to Orlando. The winner will be announced on Sunday, June 17.
