2022 Raffle Plane, a Carbon Cub FX-3, Built by Alaskans
Read About Your NextGen Builders Below
Alaska Airlines generously sponsored round-trip airline tickets for each of our NextGen educators. These educators, whose bios are listed below, will fly to Yakima, Washington to participate in CubCrafters builder-assist program. Together, they'll build just over 50% of the Carbon Cub FX-3 we're raffling off to fund a major portion of our annual operations. They will absorb everything they can about aviation technical careers and opportunities to share with their students upon returning to Anchorage.

East High School, Anchorage School District
The aviation industry supports so many more jobs than what one might notice on a commercial flight. Exposing students to viable pathways in aerospace manufacturing will help them connect the dots between the skills they learn in class and careers beyond high school. Being a part of this project will allow me to be more effective as an advocate for skilled manufacturing.
