All proceeds will go towards the EAA Young Eagles Program, which gives free introductory flights to kids in the hope of inspiring them to become pilots.

The interior includes a modified navigation screen, instrument cluster, Recaro seats with embroidered Thunderbirds elements, as well as unique sill plates and puddle lamps.
