(Anaheim, CA) The Board of Trustees of the National Test Pilot School (NTPS) is pleased to announce that it has selected the Society of Experimental Test Pilots (SETP) Foundation, the Mojave Foundation, and the Evan Etoch Memorial Foundation as the 501c3 charitable organizations that will be donated funds as part of NTPS’ conversion when it joins the Mojave Aero Group (MAG) later this year. The donations, which are subject to the completion of all legal requirements associated with conversion, including receipt of all necessary governmental approvals, should result in each organization receiving a percentage of a multi-million dollar financial award paid out over several years.
NTPS President and CEO Dr. Allen L. Peterson stated that “with community as the theme, the NTPS Board of Trustees wanted to select qualified 501c3 organizations from both our local Mojave/East Kern community and our flight test community that had the ability to make a real difference in their respective areas. We think we did a good job in finding approved 501c3 organizations that met our criteria and we look forward to working with them as the process continues.”
NTPS announced in August that it had signed a letter of intent to join the Mojave Aero Group in order to create an amazing opportunity for expanding its role and presence in Flight Test Education, Training, and Research through the synergy of combining the business acumen and resources of MAG with the technical, education, and training expertise of NTPS.
The National Test Pilot School has been serving the world-wide flight test community since 1981 and has trained thousands of Test Pilots and Flight Test Engineers through its diverse course offerings. For more information about the ‘World’s Test Pilot School’ visit NTPS at www.ntps.com
