High school students in Raleigh, N.C., are refurbishing a donated Piper Cherokee so that it can be used in support of housing and disaster relief in the Bahamas.
The aircraft was donated to Bahamas Habitat, a Christian nonprofit organization. The students in the Broughton Transportation Academy, part of Needham Broughton High School, will bring the Cherokee to airworthy condition so that it can be flown to Bahamas Habitat’s headquarters on the island of Eleuthera.
While Bahamas Habitat is supplying all of the funding and parts needed for the project, the organization is looking for donations, including a serviceable Lycoming O-360 engine and exhaust system, a Garmin MX 20 multifunction display, and a Mode-S transponder.
Aircraft and Avionics,
NetJets has added a new safety feature to its long-range fleet: a doctor who is always in.
Frustration-free manuals are now available for the Garmin GTN 650 and 750 panel-mount units.
The Flight Data Systems GT-50 G-meter is now available for certificated aircraft.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
