Nov. 21 - The Sweepstakes Bonanza will be celebrating Thanksgiving in Mineral Wells, Texas-and it will stay there until the Meggitt electronic flight information system (EFIS) receives supplemental type certificate (STC) approval for installation.
Although there appear to be some approval problems looming on the horizon, Meggit/S-Tec and AOPA are working to address the FAA's concerns about the electronic reference gyros that are part of the air data, attitude, and heading reference system (ADAHRS).
In the meantime, the day-to-day work that's part of an STC application goes on. Technicians at Meggitt/S-Tec have built an instrument panel that will stand in for the panel that's installed in N2001B during structural testing. And they're busy completing the interconnect drawings that supply the wiring specifics for the STC.
There are many reasons why you will want to be at AOPA’s Chino Fly-In on Sept. 20. Here are our top 10.
A retired airline pilot and the Experimental Aircraft Association's Young Eagles program win Public Benefit Flying Awards.
The Flying Physicians Association (FPA) has become the latest group to lend support to third-class medical reform and urge government officials to speed up their review of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). The NPRM would expand the number of pilots who could fly without needing to obtain a third-class medical certificate, a standard that has been successfully used by sport pilots for a decade.
