BENEFITING: COMMUNITY FOUNDATION OF EASTALABAMA INC
EVENT DATE: May 16, 2015
A flying ace is a military aviator credited with shooting down several enemy aircraft during aerial combat. The actual number of aerial victories required to officially qualify as an "ace" has varied, but is usually considered to be five or more. The few aces among combat aviators have historically accounted for the majority of air-to-air victories in military history.
We have identified you as a potential Flying ACE for your community. We won’t be asking you to fly or shoot down enemy aircraft. However, we are asking you to fight for our area kids’ education and advancement. The ACE program will raise funds to support AEEP, Aviation Education and Enhancement Program. The mission of AEEP is to provide educational and developmental programs in support of expanding aviation experiences and programs in our community. Aviation connects us all.
Our ACE Mission group has been selected from a core group of community movers and shakers in our area. Each ACE candidate will strive to complete a minimum of five aerial victories. An aerial victory is reached when you raise $1000. You become an ACE when you reach five aerial victories, $5000. The ACE that completes the most aerial victories will be named Top Gun at our ACES Victory party on May 15, 2015.
