AOPA Best Aircraft Showdown

AOPA Best Aircraft Showdown Aero Space Reports

Nominate your favorite today!

In the spirit of the NCAA's March Madness, AOPA is running its fourth annual Best Aircraft Showdown, a bracket contest that lets you pick pilots' favorite general aviation aircraft. Last year the de Havilland Beaver outmaneuvered its foes to earn the title of most beloved, and this year you have a chance to help determine who makes it to the tourney. Just enter your nominations above—as many as you want—and we'll use your input to select 64 worthy aircraft for head-to-head matchups in voting on AOPA.org. And remember—we've retired the previous years' winners (de Havilland Beaver, P-51 Mustang, and DC-3), so they won't be in the running this year.

Get your nominations in by Feb. 15. Then check back for the brackets, make your predictions, and be ready for voting March 17!
