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.
