Flight training w/ JetBlue Program

$2,865 of $25,000 goal

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page! My name is Terence Harris and I am undertaking a mission fueled by passion.

In 2011 I began my journey to become a pilot by paying for every single lesson one by one.

After years of moving slowly through flight training, my fiance presented me with the opportunity to apply for the new innovative program with JetBlue- the Gateway Select Program.

This was a highly competitive process and after months of preparation, tests, and interviews I am proud to say that I was one of the 24 cadets selected from over 3,000 applicants.!!!!

This is an amazing opportunity to train with JetBlue with a job offer, to fly E-190's for JetBlue, waiting for me once training is completed.

The last hurdle is just paying for the cost of the actual training, and that is why I am running this campaign, to help pay for those training costs.

I understand how difficult it is to break into the aviation industry, especially if you want to be a pilot. Cost continues to be the toughest barrier for entry. I don't want to complete this mission to benefit myself alone. If I am able to meet my fundraising goal of $125k, I PLEDGE to create a $10k scholarship to award to a local high school or college student interested in pursuing their private pilot's license. I want to be able to use my success to be a stepping stone for someone else with a desire to enter the aviation industry! Thank you!

I started this campaign in October of 2016. I've been working extremely hard to spread the word. As time looms closer to my cohort start (September), for the first time, I began having doubts about everything. However, whether or not I make my goal or not, pressing forward is my only option. Thank you all for everything. This is my next batch of over 200 more letters.
