Student pilot wins Sporty's sweepstakes Cessna

Michael P. Collins

Otto Sorg, a 25-hour student pilot from Dexter, Mich., on September 12 won Sporty's Pilot Shop's twenty-fifth annual sweepstakes airplane.

"I don't believe it," Sorg said when Sporty’s President Michael Wolf called to tell him the news. "If I'm stuttering, there's a reason for it."

Sorg, who's learning to fly in Ann Arbor, Mich., won a new Cessna 172S Skyhawk SP with a Garmin G1000 glass cockpit and two Bose Aviation X headsets.

The drawing for Sporty's next sweepstakes airplane, also a G1000-equipped Cessna 172, has been scheduled for September 10, 2008.
