Last week we shared with you that Ford and the Experimental Aircraft Association once again joined forces to auction off a one-of-a-kind Ford vehicle. This year’s custom vehicle is a 2017 F-150 Raptor inspired by the F-22 Raptor fighter jet. However, that doesn’t mean the EAA has stopped selling off Mustangs to benefit its Young Eagles program as they are also raffling off a 2017 Mustang GT convertible at the end of this month.
“Raffle proceeds benefit the EAA Young Eagles program, which provides free first flights to young people ages 8-17 to grow participation in recreational aviation,” says the online listing. “More than two million youth have flown because of the EAA Young Eagles program, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.”
To earn money to support the first flights of Young Eagles, EAA is selling up to 1,500 $100 raffle certificates at the EAA AirVenture Museum or at the EAA AirVenture event in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, which runs from July 24-30.
EAA 2017 Mustang GT Options

So, if you are in Wisconsin this month and want a crack at winning a new droptop, EAA is hosting the drawing at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 30, at the AirVenture Welcome Center. Learn more about the auction here and check out the official rules right here.
