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.
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?”
