Default I feel like I won already

My prize is seeing my RV at the top of this post and on the front of VAF twice this week already

Still to get the calendar but they take a few days extra to reach Scotland.

The photo has been on my desktop since taken by Wallace, he has is an excellent photographer but also a wealth of knowledge on aircraft in general.

Cheers

Default Just got my 3 calendars..

..but alas, no golden ticket. I still feel like a winner though, because Vans threw in some nice Vans Aircraft stickers with my order.. and I have kids!
I'm sure they'll love explaining to their classmates what the sticker on their notebook refers to. Thanks Vans!

Default 2019 Will be a Good Year !

Received my calendars and found that I had "Golden Ticket #21. Thanks Van's! I am looking forward to another tour of the factory to see the new production equipment AND scheduling a ride in the RV-12. This will be my next project after I finish my RV9-A next year.

Default Happy Easter with a Golden Ticket!

I?m one of the lucky winners of a Golden Ticket, but as a live in Germany I can?t take the tour at Vans Aircraft.

I would like to give away the ticket to someone who can use it and asked Van?s, if I may scan it and send it to someone else. I send it to Doug Reeves to give it away here at Van?s Airforce, but received no answer from him. So if anyone wants to have that ticket, please send me a PM.

Default Golden ticket!

Mine arrived this morning, with a golden ticket!! !
Help me clarify tho?; it invites me on a factory visit, announces that I can choose a hat or shirt, then, underneath tells me that I can redeem it at any time before July for $750 off the price of a tail kit.
Do they all say that, or am I extra lucky?
Best......

You're extra lucky. They're not all that way. This video explains.

You can choose which prize you want to redeem it for. Now, if you decide to give it to a friend who's on the fence and it gets them started on a new RV project, PM or email me with the details and I'll help make sure goes smoothly - and I'll also make sure you get the shirt/hat of course!

Default Ticket

Thanks Greg. I?d like a 3, but really not in a position to start one. I?ve had a blast owning and flying my 4 for the last 12 years, and enjoying dealing with Vans Aircraft, I?d love to get someone started on one. I?ll keep you posted, but will put the word out on this side of the pond first.

Default 5 calendars

I purchased 5 calendars. Three were for me. (Bedroom, Garage, and Hangar)

The other two were given away.

One of the ones that I gave away had a "Golden Ticket" in it.

Yes I gave away the calendar that had a "Golden Ticket" in it as a gift. Hope she enjoys her hat or shirt. I do not think she is the kind that will want to build an airplane. Years ago, she had a tour of the factory and has flown an RV to the factory including one that she owned.
