One More Reason To Celebrate Oshkosh -- ANN To Select Best Sportplanes of 2018!

In An Age Clouded By Icon's Flim-Flammery, We Want To Suggest Companies/Planes We HONESTLY Believe You Should Trust As we have in year's past... ANN is dusting off one of our reader's favorite programs -- our "Flyer's Dozen" of the best SportPlanes and and companies we believe deserve your consideration for an airplane of your own.

So... here's the deal... we're going to be putting together profiles of all the likely suspects, and we want YOUR input as to what companies and airframes deserve top honors this year. Unlike some other so-called awards, our 'Best of Breed' is initially assembled by experts with a true passion for sport aviation and boast tremendous long-term expertise in the field... but also and unlike other such programs; we understand, appreciate and want YOUR input... because the ultimate arbiter of a truly successful SportPlane is one that the sport aviation community Judges and selects for themselves.
