Dear family, friends, and colleagues,

Most of you know how passionate I am about aviation. But few of you know that this passion was born and developed while attending Aviation High School. I owe a great debt of gratitude to the faculty and staff of Aviation High, a great number of whom I have had the pleasure of working with for various airlines (too many to mention). I now have a unique opportunity to pay it forward, while also providing one lucky individual with an opportunity to be the next Top Gun.

Yes, you read that right! Top Gun. I am raffling off an opportunity to play
fighter-for-day. The winner and I, along with two very experienced professional fighter pilots, will take to the skies in two Marchetti SF260s. Once at a safe altitude and well over the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, you and I will duel to end – or at least until the light in one of our cockpits indicating you’ve been hit is illuminated and your aircraft is trailing smoke. We’ll be chasing each other through the sky, angling for the best shot, which will likely involve some very exhilarating maneuvers.

$25 dollars buys you one chance to win this unique opportunity, which is ordinarily reserved for exclusive few who can afford it.

All proceeds will go toward Aviation High School’s Tool Box Award, which recognizes several top students for their academic achievements in aviation sciences. Award recipients are selected by the faculty based on their grades, attendance, and technical aptitude and are presented to the winners at the graduation ceremony.

So, how ‘bout it? Will you be Maverick, Iceman, or are you more of a Goose?

The winner will be chosen by random drawing on Friday, April 5. Once winner has been announced, we will select the best date for the flight based and availability.

PS: We will not playing volleyball with our shirts off while our bare, oiled up chests are glistening in the sun. Unless of course you really, really want to.
