AOPA Fly-Ins are for real-world GA pilots and enthusiasts and their friends and families. Each day is loaded to gross with exhibits, displays, aerobatics, great speakers, and...aircraft! You'll see all the latest technologies, find ways to get the most out of flying, and learn how other AOPA pilots fly better and safer. All while basking in an incredible airport environment of fun, food and friendships.

Take your time and browse through the exhibit halls and aircraft displays. You'll see all the new equipment that that you've been meaning to learn more about and will talk face-to face with the manufacturers who have made it all possible. You'll also see things you've never heard of or thought you needed.    

Be sure to drop by the AOPA Village and let AOPA staff help you fly better, safer, and cheaper with our amazing benefits and services. On the way out, don’t forget to pick up a cap, t-shirt, or commemorative souvenir at the AOPA Store.

Best of all, it's all free to attend. Just RSVP to tell us you’re coming!

Friday Night Barnstormers, Saturday Main Event

 Be sure to attend the fun and entertaining Barnstormers Party on Friday at the airport, then get an early start on Saturday with a delicious pancake breakfast.

Attend the Rusty Pilots Seminar. Watch aerobatics while feasting on great food and drink. Get re-acquainted with old friends, and make new ones. Have fun. Take in the sights, sounds and smells of general aviation. Be inspired to fly.

A Focus on the Kind of Flying YOU Do.

 As a GA pilot, you want to know about GA stuff. You know, technologies and methods that relate to the kind of airplanes you actually fly. AOPA Fly-Ins are dedicated to providing practical information useful to GA pilots flying real-world GA aircraft. Sure, there may be a jet or two you can walk through (just in case you win the lottery), but most of the displays will feature technologies and gadgets you can put to use tomorrow to make your flying more enjoyable, practical and safe.
