2017-2018 Raffle announcement!

Monday, September 11, 2017
Filed under: News by Blair

Today we officially announce and start ticket sales of the 2017-2018 raffle!

This year’s plane is a classic Cessna 172G.  In addition to being a classic example of the most popular training airplane in the world, it features big, bold cheat lines, reverse tail number lettering, Omnivision rear window and low total time.

The photos do not show wheel pants, even though the equipment list shows it.  This is because we did not have the wheel pants available from the seller when we purchased it, but we will have them soon, and will update all the photos once we have them installed.

Click the link below to view all the details about the plane, as well as buy tickets online.  As we did last year, we will not be physically mailing tickets, but rather emailing them to you.  This not only saves us money with printing and postage, but helps us from losing any tickets and none get “lost in the mail”!  If you do not have an email address, we will still print it up and send it to you.

This will be our eleventh year giving away airplanes!  We are very grateful to all of our past supporters and hope we can sell out like we did last year!

Museum closed for month of September

The Museum will remain closed for the rest of this month.

While the museum definitely came out of the storm with less damage than so many others experienced we still have a lot of problems to address. Due to a large amount of leaks in the roof, windows, and doors we suffered a tremendous amount of damage to the atrium and a few displays. In meeting with our arcitect and contractor the issue of the leaks must be addressed and repaired before any repairs are made to the interior. Because of this the museum will need to remain closed to the public for the next 3-4 weeks minimum in order to expedite this work.

Earlier today we delivered our 10th raffle plane to a happy new owner!
