Sponsoring a Leg
For a personal connection to your contribution to this project– a project that simultaneously invests in the future of youth aviation and helps three important charitable causes –you can sponsor a specific leg of the trip!
In sponsoring a leg, you'll also be recognized for your support in many Young Pilots USA materials.
The cost of sponsoring a leg includes all fuel costs, expected food and lodging costs, as well as a significant (50% of cost) contribution to each charity. While we do our best to make sure that a large portion of each contribution goes on to one of our chosen charities, if we have not met the threshold of trip expenses, the majority of your gift will go to covering these costs.
Leg sponsorships range in cost from $5 to $250. If you wish to donate more or less than this amount, the general Donate tab is the easiest way to do so.
Thanks to our fiscal agency agreement with the Tunison Foundation, a Connecticut-based 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to education and preservation efforts for historic military aircraft, all leg sponsorship gifts are fully tax deductible to the extent allowed by the law.
