AOPA was busy over the Thanksgiving holiday - no doubt giving thanks for its millions of dollars in cash reserves, as it has moved to form the AOPA Holding Corporation - a presumably 'for profit' group charged with investing in aviation businesses.
While that move raises questions of its own, the choice of the man to lead the group raises even more. If you rushed out and bought a 406 ELT based on our report last week that the Bahamas would soon require installation of such equipment… I hope you kept your receipt. After our story of the looming February 2013 deadline went public, the Civil Aviation Ministry of the Bahamas has extended the waiver for the installation of 406 MHz ELT devices past the February 1, 2013 deadline. All this... and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
