Elite Avionics Supports Arkansas Wing

Kellye Beavers and Charles Hollingsworth of Elite Avionics (both in dark blue) very generously donated a free pitot static and transponder system certification to one of our Arkansas-based volunteer pilots.

Adam Boyd (burgundy shirt) was chosen, and here he is with his newly certified Cessna 172! (Our wonderful Arkansas wing leader, Don Cope, is taking the photo.)

Thanks so much to the Elite Avionics team – we really appreciate your support!


Do you (or a friend or family member) want an easy way to support AFSC?

We're participating in North Texas Giving Day on Sept. 20, a huge fundraising day for nonprofits. This year, they added a feature where supporters can create their own fundraising pages for their favorite organization.

The setup process is simple. All moneys raised go straight to AFSC, so you don't have to manage a thing except telling your friends.
