We received this letter from William V. Bell, the Mayor of Durham, endorsing Airolina:
To Whom It May Concern:
For your review and favorable action, I am writing to endorse the existence and efforts of Airline Music and Flight Support, Inc. Airline is a 501c-3 non-profit organization that recruits and trains youth, in our community, for professions in the field of aviation, including pilots.
As Mayor of the City of Durham for approximately 16 years my efforts to promote revitalization of our community have focused on public-private partnerships. Our youth are direct beneficiaries of those efforts. The mission of Airline is to provide activities and promote achievements that support Durham’s change-makers in a way that invests in any and all revitalization efforts. After all, any strategic plan developed to to promote the future trajectory of a city is void without actions that commit to the preparation of our most vital human resource – our youth.
Airolina Music and Flight Support, Inc. will host its third annual fund raiser next month. Contributions to their efforts would help to continue the providing of training, purchasing fuel and airspace, and retaining of the flight simulator. All of these components are vital in providing the state-of-the-art experience the program participants must have in order to be successful. For more information on Airolina Music and Flight Support, Inc. or to contribute to this year’s fund raiser please contact:
Warren Wheeler, Aviator and Board Member: (919) 523-7094
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Airline Music and Flight Support, Inc., and their striving young participants, I thank you.
William V. “Bill” Bell
