Congratulations to our 2022 Raffle Fundraiser winners!


Do you want to support general aviation in Alaska, but you don't want to enter the raffle?

Grand Prize: CubCrafters Carbon Cub FX-3

We are thrilled to partner with CubCrafters for the 2022 Alaska Airmen's Association Bush Plane Raffle! Over the next nine months, CubCrafters and young members of the Alaska Airmen's Association NextGen Club will be building a Carbon Cub FX-3 from scratch. We are deeply grateful to Alaska Airlines for sponsoring the build team's travel to and from Yakima, Washington!

This is the first time we have ventured into the realm of experimental aircraft, and we couldn't be more excited to be collaborating with the leading manufacturer of the modern Super Cub.

This year's raffle plane is all about showcasing how your ticket purchase impacts general aviation in Alaska. All proceeds from the raffle fund the majority of our annual operations, including: maintaining access to the places you love to fly, improving safety infrastructure, building your aviation community, and inspiring young people to pursue our way of flight. We hope you'll consider donating.
