Marketers are famous for saying, “If you act today…” but this time it’s really true. Teledyne Continental Motors (TCM) is offering a discount of $2,000 to $2,500 off Continental engines during the week of AOPA Aviation Summit.
It can be either a factory-new or factory-rebuilt engine, and you need not attend Summit in Tampa, Fla., to get the discount.
“We hope that this incentive will encourage TCM operators to purchase their replacement engine now before the tax benefits of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act expire in December,” stated TCM President Rhett Ross.
TCM is offering the following discounts on orders received by TCM between Monday, Nov. 2, and Sunday, Nov. 8, for factory new and factory rebuilt aftermarket engines: $2,500 off the 550 and 520 series engines, and $2,000 off the 470, 360, 240, and 200 series.

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?”
