Sporty’s Awards Alaska Seaplane Adventure Sweepstakes


Sporty’s Alaska Seaplane Adventure Sweepstakes

One lucky customer to earn a Seaplane Rating

Today Sporty’s Pilot Shop announced that Jonathan Evans of Bedford, Texas, is the winner of its Alaska Seaplane Adventure Sweepstakes. Evans will travel to Moose Pass, Alaska, to earn his Single Engine Sea Rating with Alaska Float Ratings in a PA-18 Super Cub.

“We can’t help but be a bit jealous of our winner,” says Sporty’s President and CEO Michael Wolf. “Jonathan will spend five days flying around remote mountain lakes, tight canyons and spectacular glaciers. Now that I think about it, I just may have to accompany him to make sure everything goes smoothly.”

Any customer who placed an order with Sporty’s Pilot Shop between August 1, 2012 and February 8, 2013 was automatically entered into the Alaska Seaplane Adventure Sweepstakes. The complete package includes round trip airfare to Anchorage for the winner and a companion, 10 hours of flight time and 3 hours of ground instruction, plus examiner’s fee and four night accommodation in a picturesque cabin right on the lake.

“It’s a $5,000 value,” added Wolf. “But the experience will be priceless.  We’re delighted to offer this unique opportunity in partnership with Alaska Float Ratings.”
