Win a Brand New Ready to Fly Vans RV-12 

I'll tell you the story of the airplane, but first, I'd like to say a little about the man who built it. He was an Engineer, Pilot, Craftsman, and most imprtantly (to me anyway), a friend. To say he was an aviation enthusiest is a bit of an understatement... he hadn't missed an Oshkosh. Ever. He loved what we do here, donated time, airplanes and mentorship.  He came to our fly-ins, met and mentored the kids, and built airplanes. He built the airplane and flew it for about 5 hours. He flew it over and told me "I can't wait to start building something else" He was working on a Legal Eagle when the cancer took him away from us all too soon. His family, knowing what Aviation ment to him gave us the airplane to Raffle and start Aviation and Engineering Scholarships in his name. Until it's over, all things being equal, I'd just as soon not say who he was until this is all over-for the families privacy sake. 

The Airplane:  What's to say... It's beautiful and well built. We painted it, sonewhat basic but stunning so the new owner can add stripes or bling it out like they want. As is, its gorgeous. It has about 5 hours time on it, with Dynon Sky View flat panel avionics. We are just wrapping up the paint, and prior to the Raffle end, will have a reputable service center update it, replace all the time limited components, like the coolant hoses, with new. This will be as close to a brand new airplane as we can get, all for a $100 ticket. 

The Raffle Details: We will sell 2500 tickets, at $100. Thats the story. The raffle website has an end date of 10/31/2021, but we will draw and announce when all the tickets are sold. And we will be marketing the tickets aggressively. These are great odds... Vegas wouldn't exist given them. Someone will fly away a brand new $50,000 airplane for $100  To enter, click on any picture on this page, or cut and paste this link on your browser        https://rafflecreator.com/pages/41866/vans-rv-12

Well, it should be fairy obvious that the first prize is that smokin' hot RV-12 LSA, but before I ger into the rest of the prizes, I need to say that they are listed in no particular order... heres why...

We are continuing to add Corporate sponsors who are graciously donating prizes. I don't intend to stop soliciting them for at least another few weeks, so as prizes are donated, they will go into the pile and awarded in order of retail value.  Some of these prizes (Like the three Winners Choice headsets (awarded individually) and the iPads, the Museum bought. The David Clark OneX was donated by the David Clark Company. It will be awarded above the winners choice. Here is why, In my opinion, its a better headset. I've had experience with all 3 brands, and the other 2 (Bose and Lightspeed) fall short of the Davis Clark in a few areas, but most inportantly, customer service. I have used all 3 at work, and have needed repairs to all 3. Bose offered to buy back my $1200. headset for credit and let me buy another, Lightspeed never responded to my emails, and David Clark fixed mine no problem, no charge, even for postage. Then, when they figured out who we were, they sent 5 headsets to our students. That's a company I will support. They are made in America, and rest assured, if I'm flying an airplane, it will be with a green headset on. Ok, headset lesson over... on to the booty!

All the prizes are individual (one each)
