BuildAPlane To Raffle Off Cessna 150


BuildAPlane is joining hands with the Eagle Flying Museum to fund youth aviation education programs. The Fort Worth, Texas-based non-profit organization is raffling off a recently refurbished Cessna 150 to raise money for a new Build A Plane opportunity for kids to restore a classic Boeing Stearman. Raffle ticket sales are underway now and will end Christmas Eve. The winner will be announced just in time for Christmas!

This Cessna 150, one of the most popular flight training aircraft in the world, has brand new paint, new interior, an upgraded VFR panel to include Garmin’s new G5 attitude indicator and a recently overhauled engine. Second prize is a Lightspeed Zulu 2 ANR headset and 3rd prize is a King Schools Pilot Written of the winner’s choice.

Fifty-dollar raffle tickets are available online now at the EFM website,

“We are so excited to have the chance to start a lifetime love affair of aviation for kids,” Eagle Flying Museum Executive Director Scott Perdue said, “and the proceeds from this raffle will get some great kid aviation opportunities going at our museum. This Cessna 150 could be a great personal aircraft or the perfect trainer or both, so get your tickets now!” EFM is already giving Young Eagle rides in the Cessna 150 as well as rides in the museum’s award winning restored World War II Stearman trainer. Build A Plane, working in formal partnership with the Federal Aviation Administration, promotes youth aviation education programs, as well as donates real aircraft build and restoration projects to high schools across the country.

“We’re very excited that Eagle Flying Museum has come up with such a creative way to fund a great new aircraft restoration project for kids!” Build A Plane founder Lyn Freeman said.
