Last Day to Enter DC-3 Pilot Contest

Aug 16, 2013 No Comments by

Do you have an appetite for aviation? How about a taste for turbulence? If you have always had a fondness for fuselages and weakness for wings, then “Pilot-for-a-day” is probably for you! This month, John Sessions and the Historic Flight Foundation will give 12 people a free chance to become pilots for a day.

What is a Pilot for a Day? The Historic Flight Foundation is home to a variety of impeccably restored vintage aircraft dating back the World War II era. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for 12 people (young or old!) to get behind the controls of an aircraft and actually fly it over Snohomish County (under supervision of a trained pilot, of course). It is also an opportunity to see the Historic Flight Foundation from behind-the-scenes.

If you are interested in becoming a Pilot for a Day, enter a brief explanation telling us why you should be selected. Be sure to be creative! It’s that easy. Deadline for entry is today, Aug. 16, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific. Winners will be selected on Monday.

About the author

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
