Ford Creates Specialty F-22 Themed F-150 Raptor to Benefit Youth Aviation Programs

Ford Motor Company always finds ways to give back to the community. This year, Ford Performance found a way to raise $300,000 for youth aviation programs while also being awesome.

The F-22 F-150 Raptor is a one-of-a-kind version of the off-road racing F-150 Raptor, based on inspiration from the U.S. Air Force's similarly-named fighter jet, the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor. It was built by Ford Performance in conjunction with Ford's design team to reflect the essence of precision and power of the U.S.A.F. jet.

This unique specialty truck was made for a good cause, the Experimental Aircraft Association's Young Eagles program. It was auctioned off at the EAA Gathering of the Eagles last month, and profits will go toward future youth education.

"Ford has helped build unmatched pathways for young people to discover the world of flight through its support of our Young Eagles, our youth programs and AirVenture," said Jack Pelton, CEO and chairman of EAA. "With its powerful F-150 Raptor donation inspired by aviation, Ford continues to excite with its specialty vehicles, which reflect the depth of its commitment to the Experimental Aircraft Association, its members and the future of flight."
