Promoting General Aviation

Win a plane !

On the 24th of June we’ll be at Houston Hobby Airport and visit the 1940 Air Terminal Museum. The museum is run by a great team of volunteers which organize events and care for the collections. They also run a giveaway to help with the funding. The prize is nothing else than… a Cessna 172! You can buy ticket for $50 and get a chance to win this aircraft. Click here on the picture below for all details.

Our project needs your support. Use the yellow buttons on the right hand side to buy miles or visit the links on top of the page to read more about how we try to promote General Aviation.

    @Julien - It is an earlier model, a 1958 to be exact. I’m a volunteer at The 1940 Air Terminal Museum, and one of the pilots who flies this beauty to various fly-ins to sell tickets. To be honest, the lack of a rear window isn’t much of an issue. I learned to fly on N-model 172’s with the rear window, and the only time I miss it is when I’m doing my flight control checks before takeoff - I can’t actually see my rudder moving. Typically though, I can just look at our shadow and see it move anyway, so I know I’m good. It does fly like a dream with that square tail!

    Awesome! Looks like one of the earlier models with the square tail and the venturi-driven gyros. I reckon the square tail makes them look nicer than later models, even though the lack of the back window will be a problem to those used to later-models 172s!
