See the award-winning articles from AOPA Pilot come to life in a new section of AOPA Online.
In the December issue, now in the mail to AOPA members worldwide, you'll read a tale about the hearty souls who revisit the Golden Age of aviation by barnstorming through modern-day Middle America. Through our new Web presence, you can hear the throaty rumble of those big radial engines on a 1929 Travel Air 4000 and a 1929 Fleet. Watch as visitors gawk at these amazing old airplanes and the pilots who fly them.
Particularly if you live in the West, there's a fair chance that the Christmas tree you're buying sometime in the next couple of weeks was whisked from the forest to a truck by a JetRanger helicopter flown by Brian Reynolds. Our exclusive online video called Christmas Tree Transport captures his graceful flying as the helicopter does in seconds what it might take a tractor hours to accomplish.
You might not win our Win a Six in '06 Sweepstakes airplane (then again, maybe you will), but regardless you can see what it's like to fly this beautifully refurbished Cherokee Six as you tag along with Editor at Large Tom Horne as he conducts a shakedown flight before launching for AOPA Expo.
Hear singer Livingston Taylor, subject of our "Pilots" column in the December magazine, sing an original aviation song, Kitty Hawk, December Nineteen-Three.
There's plenty more on AOPA Pilot Online and more to come every month. Check back often.
