Mooney Summit V

The “better the breed” Mooney Summit V, an educational event and social gathering, will once again be held at Panama City Beach Fl. on Sept 29th thru Oct 1st 2017. The event is free thanks to the kind donations of generous participants and sponsors. Non-flying spouses / significant others can take advantage of activities ranging from area beaches to shopping and pampering, along with our famous Friday night reception, Friday airport day, and our world class subject matter experts. As before, we plan to make this an enjoyable and educational event for the flying couple. There will be ample time for hand holding and late night beach strolls.

Bill Gilliland Foundation

The Bill Gilliland Foundation has been established by the Mooney Summit, Inc. to provide emergency crisis intervention and financial assistance for downed Mooney Pilots’ immediate families.
