Nov. 8 - After leading the Parade of Planes at AOPA Expo on Wednesday, the AOPA Sweepstakes Bonanza is nestled among an entire fleet of general aviation airplanes on display in the parking lot next to the Fort Lauderdale, Florida, convention center. The Sweeps Bonanza made the 3.8-mile taxi from Fort Lauderdale International-Hollywood Airport to the convention center in just 18 minutes. It leaves the show on Sunday to be returned to Meggitt/S-Tec for additional work toward the certification of the Meggitt MAGIC EFIS displays and the S-Tec autopilot. That process and a few minor tweaks are all that remain to be completed before the airplane is awarded to a lucky pilot early next year.
