Sept. 3 ï¿½ Patti Bennett is the latest AOPA member to win a flight in a Waco as part of AOPA's two-year Centennial of Flight Waco Sweepstakes. She and her husband, Dan, traveled to Long Beach, California, for a ride in a Waco similar to the one currently being restored for the AOPA sweepstakes.
Monthly sweepstakes winners get much more than just a "discovery flight" in a Waco. They receive a full checkout in a Waco cockpit, several hours one-on-one with a flight instructor, as well as flight instruction in a biplane. Because the Waco lacked the range of adjustment to safely accommodate her petite size, Bennett received her instruction in a Stearman.
AOPA members and potential members are automatically entered in the Centennial of Flight Sweepstakes when they join AOPA or renew their membership. There are additional ways to increase your chance of winning. Check out the sweepstakes rules on AOPA Online.
As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
