Three vintage aircraft are on display at AOPA Aviation Summit’s Airportfest. The largest of the three—and certainly the shiniest—is Joe Shepherd’s painstakingly polished 1936 Lockheed 12A Electra Junior, one of the airplanes used in the filming of the movie Amelia.
Beside the shimmering Lockheed are a blue and yellow 1941 Waco UPF-7 biplane and a bright yellow 1940s-vintage Boeing N2S-3. Both of these biplanes were used to train pilots during World War II.
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?”
