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.
Tickets for the 2014 Red Bull Air Race World Championship series, including two U.S. races, are now on sale.
Organizers of the National Championship Air Races in Reno, Nev., need to raise $500,000 by Dec. 15 to ensure they can insure the 2014 event.
Military demonstration teams will return to the airshow circuit in 2014, budget uncertainty notwithstanding.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
