The Historic Flight Foundation is making dreams come true with it’s exciting “Pilots for a Day” contest, which will give 12 lucky winners the chance of a lifetime: to take the controls of a Douglas DC-3, an antique 1930’s airliner.
The flight over the Seattle and Puget Sound region will take place from 11 to 2:30 pm on Tuesday, Aug. 27.
In addition to flying this historic aircraft, the 12 “pilots for a day” will also have behind the scenes access to the Historic Flight Foundation, including a special tour of the World World II warbirds and aircrafts in its collection.
Pilot and founder of the foundation, John Sessions, will give a lesson on the art of aviation, and an aviation mechanic will give explain radial engines and more.
The competition is open to all aviation enthusiasts, young and old.
The competition is now closed, however, those who were not selected can still enjoy all that the Historic Flight Foundation has to offer at Vintage Aircraft Weekend from Friday, Aug. 30 to Sunday, Sept. 1.
The Historic Flight Foundation is located at 10719 Bernie Webber Drive, Mukilteo.
