Sept. 16 ï¿½ Now that AOPA members have voted, it has been decided that your AOPA Centennial of Flight Sweepstakes Waco UPF-7 will be red all over with black trim. That is only slightly different than the one you have seen in promotional brochures prepared by AOPA. No, we didn't know when we printed them that you would vote for red and black ï¿½ it just worked out that way. Roy Redman of Rare Aircraft in Owatonna, Minnesota, seems to be spending most of his time in a paint booth or on the phone taking care of final details. The Rare Aircraft staff are working long hours, including weekends and evenings, to make sure you see your Waco at Palm Springs, California, in October, at AOPA Expo. Also, AOPA President Phil Boyer is now a trained Waco pilot, with AOPA Pilot Senior Editor Al Marsh soon to follow with flight training in Owatonna. The aircraft will be awarded in January 2004. There are plans for editorial coverage of the aircraft's flight of 1,500 miles from Owatonna to Palm Springs. See you there!
There are many reasons why you will want to be at AOPA’s Chino Fly-In on Sept. 20. Here are our top 10.
A retired airline pilot and the Experimental Aircraft Association's Young Eagles program win Public Benefit Flying Awards.
The Flying Physicians Association (FPA) has become the latest group to lend support to third-class medical reform and urge government officials to speed up their review of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). The NPRM would expand the number of pilots who could fly without needing to obtain a third-class medical certificate, a standard that has been successfully used by sport pilots for a decade.
