EAA's 2008 Sweepstakes Features Two New Aircraft
November 8, 2007 — For the first time, there are two new aircraft that top the list of prizes in EAA's annual sweepstakes, which officially opened November 1 and ends August 3, 2008, the final day of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.
This year's grand prize is a new Cirrus SR20, valued at $220,000, which is fully IFR-certified with a multi-function flat-panel display and the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS). Also being awarded this year is a RotorWay A600 Talon helicopter kit, valued at $90,000, along with a $20,000 RotorWay educational credit at RotorWay's new flight training facility.
All proceeds of EAA's annual aircraft sweepstakes, which is open to members and non-members, are used for EAA's youth education and aviation preservation efforts. The winner will be announced on August 3, 2008, during EAA AirVenture, The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration, at Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
"For more than a quarter-century, EAA members have created and participated in this fundraising effort that benefits EAA programs and all of aviation," said Elissa Lines, EAA vice president of commercial and donor relations. "This year's sweepstakes offers the best group of prizes we've ever gathered. These prizes are donated by companies who support EAA's mission and programs that build the spirit of aviation."
Other prizes in the sweepstakes include a Honda ST1300A motorcycle; a John Deere X700 Ultimate lawn tractor; a BOSE Wave radio/CD system; and Canon EOS 40D camera. Entry forms are available online at www.winaplane.com and also in selected issues of EAA Sport Aviation and Sport Pilot magazines (November 2007, and January, March, and May 2008).
