Help EAA Prepare Aviation's Next Generation and You Could Win a 2006 Ford F-150 Truck!
EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. - (May 4, 2006) — The EAA Young Eagles program, the largest youth aviation education program ever created, is giving you the opportunity to help prepare the next generation of flight AND win a specially equipped Ford F-150 truck!
Starting June 1 through July 30, 2006, raffle tickets are available for the Ford F-150 Lariat Edition 4x4 crew cab truck, which includes deluxe options such as rear-seat DVD screens; MP-3 player/multi-CD changer; satellite radio with six months of free service; Bluetooth headset cellular technology; Garmin GPS Map 396; and aviation radio. No more than 10,000 tickets will be sold for this one-of-a-kind truck, valued at nearly $45,000. The winner will be drawn at the close of the EAA AirVenture air show on Sunday afternoon, July 30.
Proceeds from raffle ticket sales will benefit EAA's Young Eagles program, which has provided more than 1.2 million young people with free demonstration flights since 1992. Revenue directly supports the efforts of more than 40,000 volunteer EAA-member pilots and a similar number of ground volunteers who make these flights possible in their local areas. Young Eagles flights not only help young people discover the world of flight; they show a new generation the possibilities that exist in all of us for discovery and achievement.
Tickets are being sold beginning June 1 for $20 each, three for $50 or seven for $100. They are available at the EAA AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh, during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh on July 24-30, or at various public events in the Oshkosh region where the truck will be on display.
