End-of-life Aircraft Support Research and Scholarships
The University of Florida Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation, is offering a means to dispose of a retired aircraft in an environmentally friendly manner and in a way that benefits the university’s goals.
The university is accepting the donation of both fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. “We’re looking for individuals who can no longer afford to maintain their aircraft; have lost their medical; are having trouble selling their aircraft; are delinquent in their storage/tie-down fees; or have allowed an older aircraft to go out of annual,” said Leslie Weinstein, manager and founder of Boise, Idaho-based True-Lock. He has agreed to facilitate an aircraft donation program for the University of Florida Foundation.
The funds generated by the program will be distributed among research projects.
