Short Wing Piper Club Vice President Frank Sperandeo flew his pristine Piper Pacer to Frederick, Maryland, on August 8 to present a special award to AOPA and the association's President Phil Boyer.
The stunning trophy and accompanying plaque recognizes AOPA and Boyer for "providing general aviation's leadership in the political arena, especially in the current struggle against repressive governmental user fees and the continuing struggle to reduce the oppressive flight restrictions of post-9/11."
The club said that AOPA services, including AOPA Pilot magazine and the AOPA Web site, were of "inestimable value" and "facilitated every aspect of aircraft ownership and flying."
Short wing Pipers were built from 1948 to 1963 and include such cherished models as the Clipper, Colt, Pacer, and Tri-Pacer. The " Timeless Tri-Pacer" was AOPA's sweepstakes aircraft in 1998.
