Past aircraft have been a Cessna 172, Aviat Husky, Top Cub Super cub, Maule M7, American Champion Scout and multiple Super Cubs refurbished by multiple Alaskan builders. 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.
