Share Article

The Luscombe Endowment is continuing its 'Win Me', restored Luscombe airplane drawings. Our first 'Early Bird' drawing takes place in November 2010. The winner of this drawing will get $500 in cash, and also participate in the second cash drawing, as well as the WIN ME Airplane drawing. Tickets may be purchased online at the Luscombe Endowment website.

The Luscombe Endowment continues its preservation missions for which it was formed by preserving a significant part of America's aviation industrial heritage, and delivering technical support to Luscombe Owners. The Luscombe Endowment's work as a non-Profit organization includes the same fleet support established from 1993 through 2004 by DLAHF.    

Don Luscombe pioneered the enclosed cabin monoplane in the 1920's and 1930's with the Monocoupe airplanes. He then developed the personal metal airplane market with the Luscombe Phantom, Silvaire and Sedan models from 1933 into the 1940's. Luscombe revolutionized the light aircraft industry twice in his aviation lifetime. Other manufacturers (Cessna, Piper, and Beech) were forced to develop metal aircraft designs to compete with his advances in metal monococque construction and airplane durability. Don Luscombe's aviation legacy remains flying throughout the world.

Luscombe Endowment has arranged for the continued production of parts. Its effort is supplemented by a parts exchange program, and fostered by access to knowledgeable technical support for Luscombe owners who wish to maintain or restore their airplanes; thus preserving the legacy that Don Luscombe left America.

Fundraising by the WIN ME drawing supports these efforts and promotes their expansion. Both customers and historians have praised these efforts as both necessary to the fleet and unique to preservation of American history.
