2022 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. Hi Pat happy new year.
    I think last years Wings for Humanity raffle for the 61 Piper Colt is still going. Their site shows that they have sold 675 out of 3000 tickets. There is no end date. They could probably use the publicity on this years list.

  2. Hello Pat. On the Flying Wings raffle you give the raffle date listed as closes. At first look people might think the drawing is closed. I understand the date shows otherwise but it could be misconstrued that way. Could you please change the word to drawing like all the others not sure why it is posted differently. Thanks again for all your hard work keeping this site updated.

  3. Hello Pat. Flight Club 502 already had their raffle. I assume the winner is known. But their web site is silent on the subject, and they don’t answer their emails. I am just curious; I thought raffles were happy to announce their winners.

    1. Turns out their Facebook page has a video of the drawing procedure, and a stream-of-consciousness transcription of the audio. Summarizing:

      .. Andrew Howe has just won the Bose headsets and garbanwatch…

      Second prize. .. Clubhouse box for the Kentucky Oaks and Derby… the winner is Doug Bucky from Prescott, Arkansas.

      …for our final prize, the grand prize of our precious bumblebee our 1969 Cessna 150. … Airwald from Erie, Pennsylvania.

      Just FYI

  4. This same thing came up last year with another raffle. It was a very nice Cessna 172 with previous damage. In that case the airplane had been repaired back to spec, upgraded and then flown for many years. That was a really nice plane and I wish I had won it.

    Same goes for this Archer II from Wings of Hope. There is nothing nefarious here. This incident apparently happened almost 4 decades ago. From the pics and info on their site, it looks like someone not only repaired the plane back to spec but also spared little expense in upgrading it. I have tickets for this raffle and knowing it has previous damage history doesn’t bother me at all.

    My final comment is on Wings of Hope. This has to be the coolest charity on the list. Their mission is just wonderful. Anyone who purchased tickets for this raffle please don’t regret it. If you win it you will own one of the nicest Piper Archers out there. And if you don’t your money is going to a really great cause.

  5. There’s a new raffle that just started in MN with the Wings of the North Museum at KFCM. They lost their museum lease and they are trying to raise money with a 1948 Bonanza V-35. I saw the plane myself and it’s clean (even if it’s got old avionics).

    1. Sorry for the duplicate to Dustin’s comment above. I had seen the ad and was so excited to contribute I became the comment version of “10 mile final, straight in, and traffic in the area please advise. (Airport omitted)”

  6. Be careful purchasing a ticket for the tailwind waymakers raffle. There aren’t any details about this organization plus the domain name they have an email related to is not owned by anyone. I have attempted to find something about this and have come up with nothing. This appears to be fake.

    Does anyone have detail about this organization?

  7. Looks like the Mass Air & Space Museum has pushed out the date of their raffle drawing for the Thurston Teal Amphibious Aircraft over a year. They didn’t notify anyone who has already purchased tickets (at least I sure didn’t get a notification).

    1. The Mass Air & Space Museum raffle has been listed on their site as June 30, 2023 for as long as I’ve been aware. I don’t think they moved the date. Even this flywithpat website shows they had a June 2023 end date on last year’s 2021 list (that post has presumably not been updated since last year).

    2. I believe the Problem is based in verbiage… according to the MASM THURSTON TEAL AIRPLANE RAFFLE OFFICIAL RULES they will stop selling tickets on June 30, 2023. …. If you look back to my original Post in 2021 i said

      “ the raffle starts on 07-23-2021 | END DATE: 06-30-2023 ”

      if you look further into the MASM THURSTON TEAL AIRPLANE RAFFLE OFFICIAL RULES you will see

      “The winners shall be determined by a random drawing to take place at the Massachusetts Air and Space Museum in Barnstable, Massachusetts on July 12, 2023 at 2 p.m. The location, date, and time will also be posted on the MASM website: http://www.massairspace.org.”

      How the rules read in 2022 and how it stands now The sale of tickets will end on June 30, 2023 and the drawing will be on July 12, 2023,,, according to the rules

      the confusion came from “end of raffle” was misinterpreted as “drawing” when in fact It meant “end of sales”

      I am Confident it wasn’t a change in rules or dates …Just a misinterpretation

    1. It’s more likely due to the greatly increased ticket prices, coupled with the fact they purposely did not post any interior or pannel pictures before or after the work. (Same with the last one, even after work was complete).

  8. And the Alaskan Airmen’s Association just announced their next raffle, another Carbon Cub! Tix on sale Oct 17, 2022.
