Dec. 9 ï¿½ The AOPA sweepstakes Waco UPF-7 benefited from another semi-warm day in Owatonna, Minnesota, December 7 and got another hour of test flying completed with test pilot Ben Redman at the controls. He is the son of Rare Aircraft owner Roy Redman. The engine requires about 15 hours of flight at reasonable temperatures for proper break-in. At extremely cold temperatures, oil would congeal on the cylinder walls and coat them. Shown here are two takeoff pictures, a flyby, and test pilot Redman.
The FAA has asked the National Transportation Safety Board to review a judge’s ruling reversing a fine it levied in an unmanned-aircraft case.
The Tucson Soaring Club is trying to grow the sport by training the next generation of glider pilots.
Able Flight has received and $8,000 check from the AOPA Foundation.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
