The Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) Foundation is pleased to announce the winner of the California Dream Flight Sweepstakes. Christopher Mayer, of Owatonna, MN, was randomly chosen from entries submitted by approximately 5,000 people.
The California Dream Flight sweepstakes challenged entrants to make a voluntary donation to the AMA Foundation to help build a foundation for the future. In total, roughly $15,000 was raised within the entry period.
Mayer’s prize includes round-trip airfare for two to California; a three-day/two-night stay at DoubleTree by Hilton; free admission to AMA Expo, in Ontario, California; a rental car and a $250 food stipend; and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ride in Lady Alice, a full-scale P-51 Mustang.
A second prize, donated by ROTOR F/X, was awarded to Gerry Hinshaw, of Lathrop, MO. He has won support services needed to apply for and obtain an FAA Section 333 exemption.
The foundation is committed to providing resources for the next generation of aviators through AMA scholarships, government advocacy, club and flying site support grants, AMA Flight School and e-learning opportunities, and the preservation of more than 10,000 artifacts in the National Model Aviation Museum, located in Muncie, IN.
