After selling out we took the Cessna in for its annual inspection, nothing major on the airframe was discovered but we did find two compressions in the low 60s. It needed two new cylinders. Although the other two cylinders had strong compressions we opted to replace all four cylinders new rather than have a mismatch. The new items included pistons, piston pins, rings, valves, guides, springs, rocker shafts and valve covers for a complete Top Overhaul. A few days ago we flew the airplane. It runs a little stronger and MUCH smoother. We will draw the winner before the end of April, date to be determined. We will post the drawing date here and send an email to all entrants prior to. We appreciate your patience as we break in the engine and work around the schedules of a few directors. Thank you for your continued support!SOLD OUT! - Ranger Airfield Foundation has sold the final ticket for the 2021 Cessna Raffle. RAF thanks you for entering! We want to take this opportunity to reiterate RAF is an all-volunteer organization. No one is paid at RAF; not a director, secretary, or groundskeeper. We work tirelessly to maintain Ranger Airfield, but we could not preserve it without YOU. We want you to know, because of great volunteers and supporters, RAF kept ticket sales expenses under 3%. That means over $.97 of every $1.00 donated went to Ranger Airfield. We then take advantage of sales, extra discounts, and negotiated deals at every turn. We are proud of how far we can take a dollar and that will never change at Ranger.
Now for the fun part. One of you is going to win an AWESOME Cessna! The aircraft is in inspection now (March 16) with several new parts on order. We are aiming to draw the winner the first week of April. We want the aircraft at Ranger for the drawing and will announce the specific date and time here, and email the entrants, when that date is determined.
We thank you for your continued support in making Ranger Antique Airfield a success! We cannot wait to begin the 1928 hangar restoration!
