The sweepstakes is designed to encourage pilots to take advantage of the resources of the FAA’s WINGS Pilot Proficiency Program. For every WINGS phase a pilot completes, they get one entry into the sweepstakes.
The 2020 winners are:
Christian Chandler, Massachusetts Nicholas Maliniak, Virginia Mitchell Crocker, Florida Adam Rosenberg, North Carolina Andrew Dow, Illinois Victoria Stevens, Oklahoma Richard Funcheon, Florida Kuan Tung Chen, Florida Victoria Kuo, Rhode Island Ed Whitehead, Arizona
