Barnard Foote is the latest lucky member to experience the thrill of open-cockpit flying in a Waco biplane.
Foote got to spend several hours with Mike and Kendle Hanson of Biplane Rides in Long Beach, Calif., after being selected as a monthly winner in AOPA's two-year Centennial of Flight Sweepstakes, the grand prize of which is a fully restored Waco UPF-7 biplane. For your chance at one of the monthly trips for a Waco ride, and for the Waco itself, simply join or renew your membership in AOPA.
Nextant Aerospace, adding a remanufactured King Air to its remanufactured Hawker 400 offering, says the King Air (Nextant G90XT) will fly early next year.
Greg Pecoraro, AOPA vice president of airports and state advocacy, brought Indiana aviation community members up to date on the association’s initiatives.
Elbit Systems has upgraded infrared systems that see through darkness and weather for nearly visual landings and takeoffs, as well as taxi operations.
