Aug. 7 ï¿½ Now that the move of your sweepstakes Waco UPF-7 project has been completed from Faribault, Minnesota, to Rare Aircraft's new facilities in Owatonna, Minnesota, work is progressing rapidly. Shown are Rare Aircraft shop supervisor Jeremy Redman, son of owner Roy Redman, and Rare Aircraft craftsman Doc Walker. Wing covering using Ceconite is in progress, and covering of the fuselage should occur by the end of the month. It is expected the aircraft will fly in September. Watch for it at AOPA Expo in Palm Springs, California, in late October.
MVP Aero is developing a $189,000 light sport amphibious seaplane that doubles as a camper and is expected to fly in 18 months, with deliveries in 2017.
The FAA will miss a deadline to reform aircraft certification by two years, the agency told the House Aviation Subcommittee during a July 23 hearing.
AOPA is testing whether aircraft ownership can be more affordable than many people believe with the development of “Reimagined Aircraft.”
