The Alaska Airmen’s Association’s Raffle Planes
The Alaska Airmen’s Association is a non-profit organization whose mission is “to promote general aviation in Alaska.” As a 501 c (3) they depend on fundraising to support their programs and help cover their administrative staff costs. Programs include hosting of public meetings and forums, safety programs, membership services, events and communications, scholarship and youth outreach.
The culmination of every Great Alaska Aviation Gathering is the Association’s giveaway of a raffle plane. Each year the Association sends bids to aircraft builders to build a new refurbished plane. Above Alaska Aviation was selected to build the 2018 raffle plane. This is the 19th year that the Alaska Airmen Association has raffled off an airplane, making it the largest raffle prize you can win in Alaska. It also marks the 3rd consecutive year that Above Alaska Aviation will build the refurbished PA 18-150 Super Cub.
Since 1999, the Alaska Airmen have successfully raffled a FACTORY NEW aircraft. Past aircraft have been a Cessna 172, Aviat Husky, Top Cub Super cub, Maule M7, American Champion Scout and multiple Super Cubs refurbished by multiple Alaskan builders. Only 8750 tickets are sold at $60 each or five for $275. The winning ticket is drawn on the second day of the Great Alaska Aviation Gathering traditionally held the first weekend of May. The drawing in 2018 will be on Sunday, May 6th.
