    Thought I would wait until tonight to buy a ticket so I would not have a low number and be the first in the bucket. The winning ticket is #4765! If I waited any longer I would have missed the opportunity altogether.

    I bought 6. I didn’t buy any for the previous raffle. I plan on hiring a CFI to simultaneously ferry the plane from St. Louis to Morgan Hill and give me lessons along the way. Might stop in Lawrence, KS and Erie, CO along the way to see my oldest brother and my favorite sister.

    I can apply the flying lessons scholarship to the ferry cost, as I’ll be earning my PPL.

    Well, it was just a generic C172. Probably hard to get too excited about it for many pilots. I passed on this raffle as well, not that I wouldn't be elated to have ANY flightworthy aircraft handed to me.

    Ya, it just a old run out 1970 C-172.
    Garmin Avionics suite:
    GTN-650XI GPS/NAV/COM (touchscreen which displays traffic and weather from
    GTX-345 ADS-B Transponder),
    GNC-255 NAV/COM,
    two GI-275s to replace the Attitude Indicator and Directional Gyro (which will allow us to remove the trouble prone vacuum system),
    and GMA-345 audio panel.

    And If I win that 650XI gets pulled and put in the Mooney, the old 430 from the Mooney goes into the 172, and then sell baby sell!

    well now that they raised enough money for a NEW 172, they gotta do the avionics upgrades and whatnot, so I figure 3-4 weeks easily.

    None of that is going to make it any more comfortable than the 172 that it is (I've always found them a bit cramped in the front) or able to perform any better than the 172 that it is. Don't get me wrong, I'd be ecstatic to win it, but I'd probably sell it immediately if I did.
