Growing up on the space coast of Florida, Kevin always had an interest in aviation and flying. He started pursuing a pilot's license in 1978, but it wasn't until he and his business partner purchased a Grumman Traveler in 1999 that he earned his PPL. Since then, he has flown a variety of aircraft, including a Piper 140, Cessna P210, Piper Tri Pacer, Cessna 172, Grumman AA1, and a Cessna 150 Aerobat. Kevin flies simply for the joy of flying, and enjoys taking leisurely trips to points all over Florida, the Keys, and the Bahamas. He now owns a Cessna 150A that he spent two years refurbishing. Kevin plans to use his winnings to fly his wife to Cedar Key for a weekend getaway, in celebration of their 36th wedding anniversary.
Brad became hooked on flying when, at the age of thirteen, his father invited him to go flying in a Cessna 172. Fifteen years later he had earned his PSEL and has since flown with friends and family on both short and long trips. His most memorable flight was a trip from Quantico, Virginia to San Diego and back in a Piper Warrior. Brad's flying has tapered since having two boys seven years ago, but he hopes his new Zulu.2s—along with his $500 Burger Getaway package—will be the motivation he needs to get back into the air.
Kyle Van Kooten
Kyle's very first flight—on a commercial airliner—sparked his passion for flying. Five years later he was behind the controls and last August he earned his private pilot license. Kyle, who now flies a Cessna Skyhawk and American Champion Citabria, is working on his instrument rating, as well as single and multi-engine commercial certifications. He is also studying air traffic management with a concentration in professional flight, with the possibility of pursuing a career as a professional pilot. Kyle entered the drawing by purchasing a new Zulu.2 headset. He plans to use his Getaway prize to take a trip with friends this summer.
Frank has been a private pilot for 37 years. Just after retiring as an IBEW electrician five years ago, he purchased a 1939 Piper J4A and has logged over 700 hours of flying since. He has a special love of "ski flying," especially landing on Minnesota's frozen lakes. Frank was entered into the drawing when he registered his new Lightspeed Zulu.2 headset. He plans to use his winnings to support his—as he puts it—"aviation habit."
Reade sits on the board of directors of the Recreational Aviation Foundation and, as you would expect, is an experienced backcountry pilot (not to mention an accomplished aerobatic pilot). He owns a Yak 52 tail dragger, a Husky A-1B, and a Cessna T210R that he uses for his twice-yearly migration between his homes in Wyoming and Pennsylvania. Reade flies Zulus in all his planes. He is looking forward to using his Getaway prize on his annual trip back to Wyoming in May.
A very active pilot, Bob flies a Falcon 2000 professionally and owns a Piper 235, a 1940 Aeronca Chief and an ultralight. Bob also donates his time and craft to those in need through Angel Flight. He plans on using his $500 Burger Getaway prize for an upcoming trip to New York in his Piper.
