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!

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

Clifford Gottschalk is an airplane mechanic (A&P / IA).  He is not a pilot yet, but will be soon!  He and a pilot buddy came by the museum today to fly his new plane home to Utah.

We are very grateful to Mr. Gottschalk and everyone who participated in the raffle this year to help us sell out of all 2500 tickets for the second time!

Here’s to 10 more years of raffle giveaways!

 

 

 

 

My $50 airplane!

One of our raffle plane winners, Michael Little, wrote about his adventure of flying his $50 airplane from Houston to Nebraska!

“We’ve had adventures since then, my “$50 airplane” and I, and I hope we have many more, but that flight back from Houston has been, so far, my most memorable flight.” – Michael Little, winner of raffle plane number 5.
