Discovery Flight/Flight Review Giveaway Benefiting Toys For Tots

Enter for a chance to win a free Discovery Flight or a Flight Review and help us bring joy to less fortunate children in our area this holiday season!

Manager Harmon has teamed up with Flywell Aviation in efforts to encourage the BWG Aviation Community to help support Toys for Tots and bring a smile to children in our community on Christmas morning.  Everyone that brings a NEW, unwrapped toy with a value of $20 or two toys that total $20 will be placed in a drawing.  The drawing is for either a Discovery Flight (30 minutes around Bowling Green) or a Flight Review (in winner’s aircraft with fuel paid up to $40).  This is a $120 value you have the opportunity to win.  The more toys you bring at a $20 value the more chances you have to win the drawing!  If you prefer to write a check to Toys for Tots and mail it to our office or put under our door after hours, we can do the shopping!

In an effort to keep our employees and you safe during COVID, please place your toy in one of our boxes at the Airport: FBO Building by the stairs (on pretty days during business hours it will be outside to help keep things touchless for COVID and monitored by a camera), on the aviation side of field out by Flywell Aviation’s door, or outside the Maintenance Shop on the East Side during regular business hours.  The outside boxes will be out from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday.  You must send a picture of you and your toy by our box via email to samanthat@bgwcairport.org, post a picture on our Facebook post, or call the office and let them know you put the toy in the box. 

New Pilot Spotlight: Wilson Hutchison

Although he is fairly new to aviation, Wilson Hutchison has had the thought of becoming a pilot in the back of his mind since he was a kid.

Wilson started lessons at BWG almost a year ago and received his private pilot’s license in March of this year. He just returned from a training course in Michigan where he obtained his Instrument Rating.

Wilson’s end goal for flying is to receive his Airline Transport Pilot Certificate and fly for commercial airlines. 

Congratulations and welcome to the aviation community!
