Sept. 13 ï¿½ Progress is moving rapidly along in Owatonna, Minnesota, on your Waco UPF-7 Centennial Sweepstakes airplane. One of you will win it in January 2004. It should fly for the first time in October. Before that happens, it has to have seats. Here is the official description of the seats from the manufacturer, Airovation. "The seats are fabricated from Douglass Interior Products Leather (Orkney-Black) in a tuck & roll yoke style bucket. The foam used in both seats is the same high resilient self extinguishing FR foam used in many of Airovation's jet interiors. The pilot seat bucket frame was covered with the same leather installed over ensolite closed-cell foam."
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?”
