Wolf Aviation Fund Deadline Nears
The application deadline for funding from the Wolf Aviation Fund is Nov. 15 and organizations with projects worthy of consideration are urged to get them in soon. Last year, there were 130 proposals and funding was approved for 45. The fund will consider application for any project "supporting or promoting general aviation" so the types of projects funded are as diverse as the industry itself. In most cases, only partial funding is provided to be used as leverage in approaching other organizations for money. Last year, the Wolf Aviation Fund provided money for television programs, safety seminars, youth programs and national conferences on aviation topics. There was also a project to include small GA airports on the Microsoft Flight Simulator database. Build A Plane, which takes donations of damaged or unfinished aircraft as projects for young people to work on was also funded, as was Pilot Share A Ride, which is a sort of online matchmaking service for pilots looking for people to fly with.
