The 1940 Air Terminal Museum is raffling a vintage 1958 Aeronca Champion 7FC Tri-Traveler "Champ" as a fundraiser. Raffle tickets for the fundraising contest are available for $50 each starting on Tuesday September 1, 2020, and no more than 2,500 tickets will be sold. The winner will be announced at the museum's September 2021 Wings & Wheels open-house (September 18, 2021), or an earlier Wings & Wheels if all tickets have been sold. The raffle airplane will be on display at the museum's monthly Wings & Wheels open houses, fly-ins, air shows and at popular flying destinations throughout the contest.
Ticket sales will cease when 2,500 tickets have been sold, or at noon CST on Friday September 17, 2021, whichever occurs first.
This year's raffle plane is a tricycle gear Champion 7FC from 1959 with classic 50’s styling and a striking yellow paint job as well as a built in Garmin 296 GPS. This is a rare classic, with only 150 of these made!
