Aug. 2 - For the first time in many months, the Sweepstakes Bonanza sat for 10 days without being upgraded and worked on during the EAA AirVenture 2001 in Oshkosh.
Continually surrounded by groups of AOPA members jostling for a better look, the eye-catching, freshly painted airplane blew away everyone.
As soon as the event ended, AOPA Pilot Editor at Large Tom Horne again took the controls and flew N2001B to Air Mod, the interior shop in Batavia, Ohio. For the next five weeks, Dennis and Cynthia Wolter and their talented crew will install a noise-dampening kit and a new leather interior.
Air Mod, a shop that specializes in fine Bonanza interiors, developed the sound suppression kit in conjunction with Skandia Inc. of Davis Junction, Illinois.
AOPA expressed concern in a meeting with town officials from East Hampton, New York, that restrictions proposed to curb airport noise “overwhelmingly” generated by transient commercial flights would unfairly burden traditional airport users.
