You may recall back in April reading my post covering the Jason Dahl Scholarship Fund’s fundraising efforts that awarded a lucky winner a flight in classic 1929 Stinson Tri-Motor.  The fund raiser raised several thousands of dollars that went to granting scholarships to students studying aviation in college or training to become airline pilots.

On the heels of this fantastic success, they are holding another fundraising “Experience Raffle”  that will grant the winner a ride in T-6 Texan.   The Texan was used to train fighter and bomber pilots in WW2 and today participates annually in the Reno Air Races.



The winner will receive a ride in this T-6 Texan


Last year’s winner captured their experience and shared it on YouTube:
