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.
A state-of-the art medical facility on remote Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay serves as a lasting memorial to the late Dr. David B. Nichols’ dedication to providing medical care to the community for 30 years. Now, Nichols’ aviation legacy—flying a Cessna 182 or Robinson R44 to the island every Thursday to provide that care—is set in stone.
Daher-Socata announced that it had installed the first Garmin G600 and GTN 750 avionics in one of its 2004 TBM 700C2 airplanes.
Even brief flight under actual conditions can expose how well your basic instrument flying is serving.
