Event Description

The next evolved FT University will be held on the weekend of April 26th through April 28th at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner, VA

The last three FTUs have been sell outs (thank you for your support!)

Confirmed highlights (all included in the low price of 100 dollars)

Gary Leff (gleff) and Ben Schlappig (lucky9876coins) will share their
experience booking hundreds of millions of miles worth of award tickets.

Million Mile Secrets will offer a solid introduction to those new (or always
looking to brush up!) on the hobby.

Steve Belkin (beaubo) has experience earning tens of millions of miles and
burning hundreds of millions. He’s hired New Zealand college students and
disabled Thai rice farmers to fly for him. He’ll show you how to take the
next big mileage deal and turn it to your LASTING advantage – without having
a run in with the DEA while you’re at it!

mommypoints Summer Hull is the mom to a travel loving toddler, and writes the blog Mommy Points.  Her focus is on helping families (and non-families) learn how to earn miles and points in their every day life, and then use those points for trips they never dreamed possible.   


AND many more to come

With the faculty above, and other super stars being confirmed as well, from
Fuel Dumps to First Class you’ll learn everything you need to know about
travel, miles, and points!

-- The ONLY educational event that features The Godfather of Frequent Flyer Miles, Randy Petersen
