Christopher Boyle, a private pilot from Arcata, California, is the winner of Sporty’s 2013 Aircraft Sweepstakes, a Legend Cub. He was informed of his winning status by Sporty’s President Michael Wolf during Sporty’s Annual Fly In on Saturday, May 18, 2013.

“All of us in business have phone calls we don’t want to make,” says Wolf, “but calling our Sweepstakes winner is the one phone call I look forward to making each year. I get to tell a pilot he is the winner of an all-new airplane. How great is that?”

While at Sporty’s, Boyle was given a bonus prize: He earned his tailwheel endorsement in his airplane from one of Sporty’s Academy flight instructors.

Sporty’s Sweepstakes airplane for 2014 is an all-new Van’s RV-12. This aircraft is the first factory-built airplane from Van’s, a leading designer of kit aircraft. This factory-built RV-12, one of a dozen in Van’s Signature Series, comes with an impressive panel including the Dynon Skyview system, GPS, Mode S transponder and autopilot. A Garmin SL-40 comm radio, Flightcom intercom and ELT round out the avionics suite.

All Sporty’s Pilot Shop customers are automatically entered to win the airplane every time they order. Orders received between May 11, 2013, and May 9, 2014, are eligible to win the RV-12.
