    Folks,

    United has generously given us some really exciting opportunities to bid on. The auction will benefit all the MegaDO official charities, including the Jason Dahl Scholarship Fund.

    Auctions will be open till October 21st at 12 noon central time.

    Be one of only 3 participating in a once in a lifetime 747 experience! (3 available)

    Be one of only 3 participants getting a very exclusive behind the scenes nose to tail tour of a 747 by one of United’s Chief pilots, Cal Janacek,while on the ground at ORD. See all the behind the scenes part of the aircraft no one gets to experience, all explained to you by a world class United Pilot.
    Also, included in the experience, you get to be the one of only 3 passengers that gets to take a taxi ride around the airport on a 747 in any seat you prefer, except the cockpit (sorry we tried)!


    Get a full hour of 777 or A320 simulator time at United's facility in Denver. (4+4 available)

    Get a real simulator experience hosted in Denver. Get instructions and a crash course before stepping in and spending a full hour in a 777 or A320 simulator in Denver.

    4 winners will get a 777 experience and 4 winners will get an A320 experience.

    The sim time will need to be scheduled in advance and travel to Denver is NOT included.

    So there you have it. Happy bidding!

    Question: Will the 747 experience conflict in any way with the events at ORD?

    On the OWMD you had to be a US citizen to do sim time right or it was smd3? That still applicable?

    Same for me. I was a winning bidder and didn't get in as a result of AA's restrictions. Are we able to bid on SIM time if we're not citizens of the USA?
