AOPA's Centennial of Flight Sweepstakes is your chance to experience aviation history. To mark the 100th anniversary of flight, AOPA is giving you the chance to win a true classic of the skies ... a totally rebuilt 1940 Waco biplane trainer!
To celebrate the centennial of the Wright brothers' first powered flight, AOPA asked Rare Aircraft of Owatonna, Minnesota, to restore the original airframe of a Waco UPF-7.
You can read about the Waco's refurbishment - just click on the AOPA Centennial of Flight Sweepstakes links below.
You can't win AOPA's Centennial of Flight Sweepstakes if you don't enter, so renew your membership or join AOPA today, and you will be automatically entered to win! Your entry also qualifies you for monthly drawings to win a ride in a similar Waco biplane.
A state-of-the art medical facility on remote Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay serves as a lasting memorial to the late Dr. David B. Nichols’ dedication to providing medical care to the community for 30 years. Now, Nichols’ aviation legacy—flying a Cessna 182 or Robinson R44 to the island every Thursday to provide that care—is set in stone.
Daher-Socata announced that it had installed the first Garmin G600 and GTN 750 avionics in one of its 2004 TBM 700C2 airplanes.
Even brief flight under actual conditions can expose how well your basic instrument flying is serving.
