Aero-News has learned more than 225
people signed up as Mentors and prospective pilot recruits for the
AOPA Project Pilot program at AOPA Expo.
Anthony Mazzarella, of Santa Monica, CA was one of 100 Mentors
who enrolled students from the Project Pilot booth outside the Palm
Springs Convention Center. "Project Pilot makes tremendous sense,"
he commented. He signed up his 16-year-old son Michael after
reading AOPA Project Pilot success stories in AOPA Pilot.
Mazzarella is no stranger to mentoring. Five years ago, he
guided his father through flight training. This time around, he'll
have the added resources of the tools available on the AOPA Project
Pilot Web site that he can use to mentor his son.

Pilot program -- or sign up as a Mentor -- can visit the web site
