Thanks to everyone that helped out during the 100LL Fund T-shirt campaign. $893 was raised from the 121 shirts sold, another $1350 was given directly for fuel via The Master’s Mission. That will provide for 25.5 hours of flying!
We have already been able to use a little over seven hours of that fuel for two very important missions. The first was to get a caretaker to/from Kokrine Hills Bible Camp because the director’s wife, Carole, had a ruptured appendix and is still recovering in Fairbanks. The second use has been to fly critically needed supplies and materials to the Pastor and his family in Eagle, AK. They are rebuilding from a house fire for that has left their place unlivable. Thankfully no one was hurt.
Keep checking back for updates on what the 100LL Fund is being used for. Remember to enter your email address in the upper left column of the homepage to subscribe to notifications when a new post shows up.
Thank You! Thanks to all the folks that helped with the 100LL Fund through the Booster.com t-shirt campaign. We sold 121 t-shirts and raised $893.72. That is 152 gallons of fuel and 10 hours flight time, incredible. Look for updates on how we use that fuel in ministry in the coming months.
When flying it is always best to “fly by the numbers.” Meaning that if you want the airplane to perform to it’s limits and be predictable in the way it reacts you must fly the specified airspeeds, manage the engine settings, load buy the book and don’t act like you are Chuck Yeager. So numbers are important when you are trying to figure out if you can really take-off from that confined area or if you will have enough fuel to complete the trip based on the winds aloft. As a result I am a numbers kind of person.

I have wanted to make up a t-shirt with the TMM Alaska logo for quite awhile now. Several folks have expressed interest in them too, so I thought I would see what I could do. Booster.com has a way for us to design our own shirt and let others purchase them without us having any cash outlay and inventory to try and manage, there is even a chance to raise a little money for aviation fuel in the process.
If you would like to help us with the Fuel Fund take a look at the t-shirts we have designed and buy a few. A portion of the sales comes directly to us so we can purchase fuel for the thirsty airplanes. Go to http://www.booster.com/tmmak
