The Alaska Airmen’s Association is a non-profit organization whose mission is “to promote general aviation in Alaska.” The culmination of every Great Alaska Aviation Gathering is the Association’s giveaway of a raffle plane. The Association sends bid requests to aircraft builders to build a refurbished plane. Above Alaska Aviation was selected to build the 2020 raffle plane. This is the 21st year that the Alaska Airmen's Association has raffled off an airplane, making it the largest raffle prize you can win in Alaska. It also marks the 5th consecutive year that Above Alaska Aviation will build the raffle plane.
This year we are completely refurbishing a 1955 Cessna 180, SN 31731, with a 260+ horsepower engine. Our primary goal with this aircraft is to make it a true four place heavy hauler! We plan to equip this aircraft with both 29” tundra tires and floats, extended wings, a STOL kit, gross weight increase, extended baggage compartment, IFR capable avionics, the latest constant speed propeller, a full electrical system including LED lighting and many other useful modifications.
Rosen is a proud sponsor and has donated a Cessna Sunvisor System with the 3rd axis mod kit to maneuver visors around the V brace. You can enter to win this airplane being refurbished by Above Alaska Aviation. 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 2020 will be on Sunday, May 3rd. Tickets can be purchased by contacting the Alaska Airmen’s Association at 907-245-1251.

For the life of me I cannot understand why Audi would produce this amazing $200,000 automobile with a tiny little non-movable sunvisor. This is my second R8 Spyder, and I’ve been searching for nearly 10 years to find a solution, and finally, I found one. I purchased a Rosen aviation sunvisor for about $275 for the pair. https://www.rosenvisor.com/store/p17...plete_Set.html
When I received them, I was thrilled to see how well-machined and heavy duty these multi-positional visors are.. They are infinitely adjustable, including overhead and sun blocking on both the passenger’s, and driver’s side side windows. The tint seems dark enough to do the trick, though I may apply a carbon fiber film for total opaqueness after I try them out in strong sun on a long drive. They come with a thumb wheel to lock down the articulating arm and Allen wrenches to tighten the various pivot joints. High speed driving and wind will not budge them.
