The AOPA ramp at Frederick Municipal Airport during the AOPA Fly-in has become one of the best places around to see the latest general aviation manufacturers have to offer. The twelfth annual Fly-in on June 1 is shaping up to be no exception. More than three dozen aircraft will be on hand, as will a Waco similar to the AOPA Sweepstakes Waco, and the ASF "Spirit of Liberty" Trinidad GT, which is currently up for bid at the ASF Online Silent Auction.
Among the aircraft scheduled this year is the Maverick Executive Jet, a custom-built, twin-engine small jet designed to be flown by a single pilot and carry up to five passengers.
The Maverick is technically a kitbuilt aircraft that was able to beat competitors to market by using existing technologies, including highly modified military turboshaft engines as powerplants.
