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 AOPA Medical Advisory Board is the latest group to urge quick action on the proposed FAA rule that would allow thousands more pilots to fly without the need for a third class medical certificate.
Mexico has lifted a requirement that pilots of arriving and departing private general aviation flights use a third party provider to file advance passenger information system (APIS) manifests.
