AOPA Aircraft Challenge – Vote Now!

It’s March Madness time!!  And this year, AOPA has put a new twist on an old competition.  AirFleet Capital is proud to sponsor the first annual “Favorite Aircraft Challenge – open to all members and non-members alike with a quick registration at http://www.aopa.org/aircraft/challenge/?cmp=MM:HP.  It’s a full-blown March Madness Tournament for aircraft!

Vote for your favorite General Aviation aircraft in a series of head-to-head matches in bracket format.  Pay close attention, because each day you will have access to vote in another Region’s match-ups – don’t miss out on helping your favorite bird through to the next round!

Some exciting match-ups to watch in Round 1 include:  (#7) Pilatus vs (#10) Bell 206 in the East Region and (#8) Phenom 100 vs (#9) Citation Mustang in the Southwest Region.  Could there be a few Cinderellas in the mix?  We have our eye on (#13) Piper PA32 possibly upsetting (#2) T-6 Texan in the West Region and the (#16) Grumman Widgeon giving the (#2) Stearman a run for its money in the Southeast Region.

As for our projections?  We think the overall competitions in the East and Southwest are awesome, with the #1 and #2 seeds in both divisions presenting great potential matchups to go to the “Four on Final” – a Battle of the Branches in the East with (#1) P-51 Mustang vs (#2) F-4U Corsair, and Battle of the Birds in Production in the Southwest, two high-performance singles representing traditional and modern technologies with ( #1) Beechcraft Bonanza vs (#2) Cirrus SR22.

They’ve already proven they can make it to the dance… but WHO. WILL. GO. ALL. THE. WAY??  Sign up, vote for your favorite aircraft and make it happen!
