As some of you might know for the last year I have been applying to both the United States Naval Academy and Air Force Academy. This has been a slow moving process, but after eight months of waiting I have finally made a decision. Last month I received news that I was accepted into the Air Force Academy, and after being declined by the Naval Academy, I accepted my appointment. This summer I will be reporting to the United States Air Force Academy for my first day of basic cadet training, where I will spend the most beautiful days of the year doing push-ups and running. To most people this would be considered a form of punishment, however, for the last few years it has been my dream. The challenge of attending the Air Force Academy excites me, and knowing that I will go through the process along with highly determined and like minded individuals makes it all the better. This opportunity however is the result of many supportive people in my life, including some of the many great people in the Flite Test Community.

Considering that I will be away from home for 90% of the next 12 years, I have come to the conclusion that my arsenal needs to find a new home. I'd hate to have all of this stuff in my workshop not being flown, crashed, and repaired. That's why I am giving away 95% of my stuff to you guys. (Gonna hold on to a transmitter, glider, tiny whoop, battery and charger for some occasions) This includes everything from a cine whoop, to a monster mustang. I'm not giving up on the hobby, it's just that when I get back into the hobby, I'll have a bit of money to spend and I'll probably want to test out some of the advancements that will have been made in the next 10 years (assuming the hobby isn't shut down by then) I would rather not give my arsenal to just one person so I would like to distribute my things at flite fest. However, over the summer I will be going through basic cadet training during flite fest and cannot bring my arsenal there myself. This is where I need a volunteer or two. Would anybody be willing to gather my stuff in a U'Haul or a big van and take it to Flite Fest? The reward is first choice in whatever plane you want. I know this is a lot to ask, but I would really hate to see my stuff just collecting dust. I have also considered asking Josh if they would like to distribute my things, but Flite Fest is already a huge responsibility and I would hate to add this to the list. I'll make a list of the big items in my arsenal, feel free to ask questions. Thanks again for being such a supportive community over the last four years, I'm blessed to have met you all.

I would like to first congratulate you and wish you the best of luck in the armed forces, and i would like to thank you ahead of time for your service and contribution to our freedoms. I wish you the best.

I would also like to thank you for your continued effort, experience and knowledge you have shared with the community. In my brief period of getting to know you here I have appreciated and admired your work. And donating your gear to Flite Fest attendants is very gracious.

That's awesome! I haven't decided where I'm gonna go yet. I may go to the Air National Guard, or ATP, or maybe Embry lol. I appreciate your donation to the great people in this hobby! In advance, thank you for your service! Everybody in the US appreciated it!
