The Tractor Seat or "Pucker Factor" award is awarded annually to the SNAG member who has exhibited flying performance exemplary of what not to do. It was first awarded to Dick McSpadden when as a new Navion owner he won his first spot landing contest by dragging his beloved Navion over the fence on the edge of a stall with wings wagging and fighting to maintain control long enough to land without damage to the airplane. Dick won that event and continued to become an accomplished Navion pilot. Dick has won many spot landing and flying contests in his Navion since that time long ago. More recently the Tractor Seat has been awarded for actions like running out of gas, flying into the night with a dead alternator, and being unable to find Shade Tree Airport AGAIN!
