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!
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?”
