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.
The next stop is Putrajaya, Malaysia, on May 17 and 18 for the 2014 Red Bill Air Race World Championship, following an “electrifying” contest in Rovinj, Croatia.
AOPA Foundation President Bruce Landsberg talks with AOPA Senior Vice President of Government Affairs and Advocacy Jim Coon on his first 100 days and the top advocacy issues confronting AOPA.
