2021 Airplane Raffle List

Every year I put together a list of airplane raffles, this year is no exception. This list will be updated as new raffles are announced. I am not including sweepstakes type contests just traditional raffles. This is a crowd sourced list and it is on you to determine the legitimacy of each raffle. Good luck!

  1. We would like to add a raffle to your list. The LaPorte airport is doing this raffle to replace an annual pancake breakfast. Our official start is April 1 and the drawing will be held on August 15 during the last day of a B17 visit to LaPorte. The web site is laporteacraffle.com We have links to the Aero Club and airport sites on this page.
    Thank you for this list.
    Raffle committee.

  2. It looks like American Flight Museum has pulled the Cessna 172H raffle and the link is dead. I suspect it had to do with the questionable engine history on that airplane and I applaud them for doing this.

    They are now raffling a very pretty 1980 Piper Warrior II with 68 hours SMOH. The new link is:
    https://rafflecreator.com/pages/15439/1980-piper-pa-28-161-warrior-airplane-raffle

    I am not sure what they are doing about those of us who had purchased tickets for the Cessna but I suspect they will let us know

  3. The plane in the La Porte aero club is not registered to them, I am always suspicious of such things, and could easily be incorrect but, I did look for the N number online. ???

    1. Space- thanks for letting me know. One of their members reached out to me to be put on the list. I can only attest to the fact that the communication appeared legit to me, but I am no Columbo. You could try reaching out to them directly to verify things club website

      1. I’m no Columbo either. But N333AE has the same serial number. And the web has a dramatic photo of an inverted Skyhawk resting on a taxiway in Iowa. NTSB report says it got blown over by high winds; substantial damage; no injuries.

        1. really great detective work; yeah as others have said about this in the comments here, as long as it was repaired to spec and has lots of hours since then (which it appears to be), I am not concerned as this situation is not uncommon. I just wish they did a little better paint job with the new N-number lol, but I guess I can use some of the $20K for repainting 🙂

    1. I wouldn’t feel too bad about buying that ticket. I wish LaPorte would have been more forthcoming about the damage history but it does look like the damage has been long repaired and the plane comes with $20,000.

      I was upset too but man for a $60 ticket I would still feel pretty good about winning it.

      And special props to JEH (aka Columbo) for some damn fine investigative work.

    2. I agree with Ben on this one. My club has purchased planes with significant damage before, as long as it has been repaired to specification and has since accrued 100’s if not 1,000’s of hours then I don’t personally see what there is to worry about. But of course everyone has their own view on this one.

      Annnd most of all we are talking about $60! You can win the plane and just sell it off, pay some taxes and still make a good chunk of change.

  4. It would be interesting to see how the taxes are handled on these raffle prizes. Federal and state income taxes, possibly along with sales tax would be owed based on the value reported on the prize. I wonder if the organization has to issue a Form 1099 or W-2G establishing the taxable value of the prize. Would there be some requirement to pay the income tax (or 25%) before claiming the prize or would the winner just pay all those taxes on their Federal, state and local 1040 forms at tax time. It seems like these taxes would end up costing about 1/3 the value of the prize.

    1. Noncash Prizes: For noncash prizes, the winner must pay the organization 25% of the fair market value of the prize minus the amount of the wager. Example 3: Jason purchased a $1 ticket for a raffle conducted by X, an exempt organization. On October 31, 2004, the drawing was held and Jason won a car worth $10,000 (fair market value). Because the prize exceeds $5,000 and the fair market value of the car is $10,000, the tax on the fair market value of the prize is $2,499.75 [($10,000 minus $1 ticket cost) x 25%)]. Jason must pay $2,499.75 to X to remit to the IRS on his (Jason’s) behalf. X would indicate the fair market value of the prize ($10,000) in box 1 and the amount of the withholding tax paid ($2,499.75) in box 2 on Form W-2G.

  5. Partial Wings of Hope results posted. Supposedly only 5,000 tickets sold, and I don’t math good, but maybe someone can help explain how there are 16,520 sequential numbers between the first and second prize winners?

    Grand Prize: #537964400621

    Second Prize: #537964384101

    Third Prize: Pending*

    Fourth Prize: Pending*

    Not sure there is any wrong-doing here, but this sure looks fishy to me.

  6. I reached out to WoH and here’s the explanation they provided:

    The raffle ticket numbers you receive are your transaction number, followed by the number of tickets you purchased. For example, if you bought one ticket and your number was this:

    #757575757571

    What it literally is, the transaction number followed by the number of tickets purchased. It helps to insert a hyphen like this: #75757575757-1.

    Using the same example, three tickets are sold, they would look like this:

    #757575757571

    #757575757572

    #757575757573

    OR

    #75757575757-1

    #75757575757-2

    #75757575757-3

    Using the same example, 10 or more tickets are sold, they would look like this:

    #75757575757-9

    #75757575757-10

    #75757575757-11

    In previous raffles, we simply sold tickets consecutively, however we would encounter technical issues during high traffic times.

    1. I just read their site again. It looks like the drawing is 30 days after they close, so being that they close today 6/30/21 I would expect the raffle then. There is also a phone number on the site if you have questions. This is just my interpretation I have no connection to that org.
