PENSACOLA, Fla.- The National Flight Academy received a $3 million challenge grant from Hilton Hotels founder Conrad N. Hilton’s foundation. It will be paid when the academy, now under construction at Naval Air Station Pensacola, meets its current $15 million fundraising goal. The academy is set to open in 2012 and will be a naval aviation-themed educational camp for students in grades 7-12. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 04/06/11)
