    Odds can vary with what you're seeking, i.e. a specialized vs. general purpose aircraft. The website FlywithPat.com lists our raffle along with all known others for 2020. After reviewing the offerings of the other raffles we feel the quality of our aircraft along with our 2nd, 3rd and 4th prizes constitute a highly attractive offering.

    I think for that much I'd pay off my house and buy a nice 310.
    Edit: well, pay off my house, anyway.

    People are even complaining on their Facebook page. Think it is more than just too many people trying to access their site? They have had problems in the past, but I have always been able to at least get to the site.

    COVID meant more folks were at home and had set alarm clocks to be awake when the gate opened.

    Liked it better when it was 3,000 tix at $150 for three. But I still bought it, so I guess I'll go shut up about it and think about my new airplane with one door. : )

    In for one!

    Reading the details it list the "GMC-507: Integrated 2 axis Auto-Pilot", which is the experimental autopilot controller. Makes me curious if these are the STC G5s or if it's all a field approval on the experimental versions.

    me too, although I'd be fine if they kept it $195 for 3 but brought it down to 3000 tickets.

    On the other hand, it's a smaller chance to incur a $50k IRS tax liability....

    The GMC-507 is the mode controller for the GFC-500. I presume it's just a typo and they intended to say it was a GFC-500 2-axis autopilot install. There are 2 variants of the GMC-507, the PMA'd one used with the GFC-500 and the non-PMA'd one used in the experimental installs.
