    A lot of folks will be wagering the cost of a raffle ticket for the chance to win this aircraft.

    Is there any chance that the folks at Above Alaska Aviation would be willing to make a bet that their “estimated” performance specs are a reality for this Super Cub at gross weight? I think that I would have a much better chance winning a bet against the optimistic performance specs than I would have winning the aircraft in a raffle. Anyone at Above Alaska Aviation willing to make a bet that the performance will come in as estimated on their website at gross weight?

    I'm gonna forgo the doubting wager, and guess it's a dyslexic typo.
    1,100 may be/might be/could be a possible dream with qualifications. Qualifications such as, without external mods, pud, big wheels, etc.
    Regardless, best of luck to us wager'ers and Above Alaska.
