Don’t miss the unveiling of EAA’s new sweepstakes airplane on AeroShell Square. The aircraft, the all-new Flight Design MC, will arrive today and pull into AeroShell Square at 12:30 p.m. for an unveiling and news conference. This Flight Design aircraft will be named as the 2008/2009 Sweepstakes aircraft. Afterwards, the Light-Sport Aircraft (LSA) will go to the Flight Design exhibit (Main Aircraft Display Area 5, 6, 12, 13).

This is the first time a newly unveiled airplane will be donated to EAA for use in the organization’s sweepstakes, which raises funds for EAA’s philanthropic activities. Flight Design will present the keys for the donated 2008/2009 aircraft to EAA President Tom Poberezny at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 1, at the Flight Design exhibit.

This is also the first LSA to be designated as the EAA Sweepstakes aircraft. Flight Design is targeting this entirely brand-new design at the sport flying and flight-training markets in the LSA category.

Meanwhile, EAA members and event visitors will be able to enter the Sweepstakes for the 2007/2008 Sweepstakes aircraft, the Cirrus SR20, at the EAA Welcome Center (northwest corner of AeroShell Square) and at the Sweepstakes booth (northeast corner of AeroShell Square) all week long.

The EAA Aircraft Sweepstakes raises funds to advance EAA’s work honoring aviation’s past, inspiring its future, and preserving an environment that encourages innovation and achievement. To preserve and promote "The Spirit of Aviation," the sweepstakes supports EAA programs such as Young Eagles, AeroScholars, Air Academy, historic-aircraft restoration and flight operations, the EAA Museum, and the Founders’ Wing project.

Flight Design USA is the U.S. importer of the CT series from Germany. It will also import and distribute the MC. The company has succeeded in delivering more than 260 aircraft to its network of distributors and dealers making Flight Design the leading brand of Light-Sport Aircraft since the segment was created. The carbon fiber CT is the best-selling LSA in the United States. More than 1,000 Flight Design aircraft are flying around the globe.

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
