The Piper J-3 Cub, one of the legendary aircraft in aviation history, will take center stage for the next nine months as the grand prize for the 2012 EAA “Win The Cub” Aircraft Sweepstakes.
The EAA Sweepstakes, one of the longest running airplane giveaways in the world, annually supports EAA’s aviation education programs. In a change from past years, entry forms will be available beginning this week through EAA AirVenture 2012 fly-in at Oshkosh, Wis., on July 23-29. All prizes will be awarded to winners in random drawings at the EAA AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh at 5 p.m. on Sept. 10, 2012.
The Piper Cub grand prize in 2012 coincides with AirVenture’s commemoration of the Cub’s 75th anniversary. In addition, the grand prize package includes skis for winter flying, plus Sport Pilot certificate and/or tailwheel endorsement training if desired.
“This is your opportunity to win one of the great, icon airplanes in aviation history that is perfect for fun flying,” said Elissa Lines, EAA’s vice president of business and donor relations. “At the same time, you’ll be joining the rest of the aviation community in supporting EAA’s activities and programs that are helping to create the next generation of aviators.”
