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 refurbish an early model Cessna 180 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, a constant speed composite propeller, a full electrical system including LED lighting and many other useful modifications.
