    Yeah, that's why I had the question mark. I couldn't recall the specifics on it. Not my area of accounting. :)

    To finish the answer the reason why is it's risky (kinda). Plus the proceeds cannot enrich a person or business. It has to be used for the intended, stated, purpose when you incorporate the 501(c)3. We will be using the net proceeds to advance aviation education through scholarships and Angel Flight.

    Yah I agree, it's hard not to get excited reading about this one:

    http://raffleplane.com/
    and
    https://www.aopa.org/go-fly/aircraft-and-ownership/aircraft-fact-sheets/piper-cherokee-6


    Both make me want one.

    I think these raffles are fun. You aren't likely to win; you are really buying hope. You are paying for a few nights where you drift off, dreaming of what you would do when declared the winner. Where would you fly first, would you try to take it all the way across the country for a winter vacation? It seems just fast enough to consider it. How cool will you look flying that thing? How will your transition training go? Will the dog stay in the far back seat? How is this thing in the back country, does it handle the grass strips well?

    GoDaddy has been known to make money off other people's domains by screwing with their DNS entries. Or "borrowing" (not stealing) their domain names. And other things. Not a hosting company I'd ever do business with.

    That's cool I'll post here when the tickets are available. I'll figure out a way to get tickets in a more "analog" way. We already have over 300 people signed up for first notice when the tickets are on sale.

    I think you should close the raffle at 300 people. That way I have a better chance of winning that 6! Actually sell them all, more money for your charity and I’ll still win the plane.

    Your web form has this question:

    What is thirteen minus 6?

    I typed seven and was told that was the wrong answer.

    Though 7 worked.

    If everyone expects him to not use any services that they haven't had a bad experience with, or dislikes their politics, etc, he'll be asking for cash and handing out ticket stubs.

    We have to get the 501(c)3 election approved first then the rules have to be approved by the lawyers. Conservatively, I'd say January. I'd like to be able to show it at Sun n Fun to finish selling any tickets left over. Before then the paint and interior will be done. I'll keep photos coming on progress.

    As the 503(c) gets setup, and the lawyers approve, be sure to include language on the site about tax donations and other details.

    Good luck,

    Can't help you with the wallet issue, but I found the Six was pretty easy to learn. I checked out in it with less than 200 hours I think.

    Yeah, I’m sure with some good transition training, it would be fine. I only have 105 hours, but some of that was in a hawk XP so I have at least used a CS prop.
