The Captain Jason Dahl Scholarship Fund (a tax-exempt IRS 501 (c)3 charity) honors the late United pilot, Captain Jason Dahl.  He was the captain of United Flight 93 which crashed into a field and not into its intended target on September 11, 2001.  And just as Captain Dahl worked to qualify and train United pilots, his scholarship provides tuition for students to attend flight school.

Via Captain Denny, The Scholarship Fund is raffling off a chance to ride in a 1929 Stinson Tri-Motor aircraft – American Airlines’ oldest surviving aircraft!  The winner will be able to invite one guest to join them on June 1, 2013 at the Anoka County Airport, near MinneapolisWinners must provide their own transportation to/from the Anoka County airport.

Here are some photos that FlyerTalk member Pat89339 was kind enough to post.  And here’s a blog post from last year’s winner.
