Nov. 1 - AOPA's favorite Bonanza, our sweepstakes special, was again in Mineral Wells, Texas, as the certification technicians with Meggitt/S-Tec gather the data that is required to comply with the FAA's supplemental type certificate (STC) program. This is for the installation of the Meggitt Magic electronic flight instrumentation system (EFIS).
On October 31, the experts from General Aviation Modifications Inc. and Tornado Alley Turbos picked up N2001B for the short trip to Ada, Oklahoma. They are going to look over the engine installation, download the engine data from the memory of the J. P. Instruments EDM-800 engine monitor, and make any adjustments that they deem necessary before AOPA Pilot Editor at Large Tom Horne picks up the airplane on November 3.
The Sweepstakes Bonanza will be on exhibit from November 8 through 10 at AOPA Expo in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Make sure you show up to celebrate the world of general aviation. See www.aopa.org/expo/.
