SAN RAMON, Calif. -- The pilot who guided a disabled jetliner to an emergency landing in the Hudson River is offering his pilot's hat to help two California schools.

Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger's hat is being offered on eBay. Allie Herson, a representative with a publicity firm working with Sullenberger, says the high bidder will get the hat and a personally written note from Sullenberger and his wife, Lorrie.

The money will go to Dougherty Valley High in San Ramon, where the pilot's daughters attend school, and a sister school, Lockwood Elementary in East Oakland.

Sullenberger was not wearing the hat when he landed his disabled US Airways jet in the river.
