Flight training provider King Schools, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, launched its second Alaskan Flying Adventure Sweepstakes today at EAA AirVenture 2014 in Oshkosh, Wis. Husband and wife training legends John and Martha King kicked off the contest, the winner of which will receive an Alaskan flying vacation for two valued at approximately $9,500, including a bush flying course and a chance to earn an add-on seaplane rating.
“Alaska has a special place in our hearts,” said John King. “Martha and I have made over 50 round trips from San Diego to Alaska in our own airplane and we have traveled the state in airplanes both on floats and on wheels.”
“We think it is very fitting that we are giving away an Alaskan flying vacation to a lucky pilot that will put them in touch with that amazing experience,” added Martha King. The sweepstakes will be open to entries until April 6, 2015, with the winner being announced at next year’s Sun ‘n Fun International Fly-In and Expo in Lakeland, Fla. The official rules of the contest are available on the company’s website.
