An aviation decoration is a must on a pilot’s Christmas tree, and nothing helps the season to be jolly like the Sporty’s Annual Christmas ornament. In 2011, aviation’s always awaited arboreal addition arrives in the lovely form of a Beech Staggerwing. The limited-edition ornament of the classic aircraft that first flew in 1932 includes a bright red ribbon for hanging, and is boxed for giving as a gift. The ornament (9833-11A) is available for $24.95 online, or by calling 800/SPORTYS. While you’re shopping, add the 2011 limited edition AOPA Holiday Ornament, a 1940 Waco, to your list. It’s available through the AOPA Store.
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?”
