Phoenix East Aviation, Inc. has
announced the winner of a Private Pilot Basic Course giveaway. Beau
Mongold, Summerton, South Carolina, was selected at random from all
entries submitted at the Phoenix East Aviation exhibit during EAA
AirVenture 2004 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He will receive his training
at Phoenix East's flight training academy in Daytona Beach,
Florida. Beau also received a free membership in EAA.
Beau commented that he has loved aviation since boyhood, and now
at the age of 25, he is looking forward to beginning flight
training: "I just never had the time or money to take flying
lessons. College was more important."
He added: "I've always had an
interest in training for an aviation career. Winning this flight
training course may now provide the opportunity to seriously start
working toward that dream."
Aviation has been a part of Beau's family for 3 generations. His
grandfather and uncle were retired Captains at Delta Air Lines.
Beau's father, George Mongold, is a recently retired US Airways
Captain. Phoenix East Aviation, Inc. provides comprehensive pilot
