FedEx Express is accepting applications from qualified aviation schools, universities, museums, and other aviation education organizations for a JT8D engine with stand from the company's retiring fleet. Please submit a detailed summary of your organization, including information about your program, how the engine would enhance your program, and any joint use opportunities with other area programs to increase the use of the asset. The recipient will be required to sign a contract that restricts the transfer of ownership and the sale of parts, and acknowledges that the engine will be used for ground training only.
Contract approval and a delivery date will be finalized with the selected organization, and the winner will be announced at WAI2018. Applicant must also be a corporate member of Women in Aviation International to be eligible. For the FedEx award, include two stapled complete application sets (one original and one copy) of the official online WAI application form, and the typed, descriptive, 500-word essay.
