Oct. 4 ï¿½ Work is proceeding at Rare Aircraft again after a brief delay to upgrade the paint booth with a sprinkler system. Individual parts are getting a coating of the unique dark red paint chosen for the AOPA Waco UPF-7. The fuselage has all its plumbing, such as fuel lines, and is wrapped and ready for the paint booth as well. Workers at Rare Aircraft are working long hours to get the aircraft ready for AOPA Expo at the end of October in Palm Springs, California.
A touch of history, affordable flying, unique sightseeing, a good meal, and a community of pilots: Isn’t that what general aviation is all about?
Getting the job done on the local and national levels requires long-term planning, a hands-on approach, and keeping the effort moving, said Sean Collins, AOPA’s Eastern regional manager.
Deep in the dense, moss-draped, oak forest of Amelia Island is a luxurious plantation resort. Check out this Florida destination while you are in the Southeast for AOPA's St. Simons, Georgia, Fly-In on Nov. 8.
