aopa fly-ins 

pancakesFor the first time in its 75-year history, AOPA will meet its members where they fly and share the joy of flight at a series of one-day regional fly-ins. Throughout 2014, these fly-in events will be held at six of our nation’s friendliest airports.

AOPA Fly-Ins will have something for everyone. Spend a Saturday with AOPA participating in aviation activities, exploring exhibits and seminars, enjoying a couple of meals, and building relationships. With free admission for members, these fly-ins will feature activities designed to bring you and your association together around our common love of flying. Bring your family along and make a weekend of enjoying the rich surroundings of great GA airports and their local communities.

Look for AOPA at other great aviation events held all over the United States—from major airshows and fly-ins, such as Sun ’n Fun and EAA AirVenture, to important regional gatherings such as the Great Alaskan Aviation Gathering and the Montana Aviation Conference.

Learning:

Join AOPA for useful educational experience, with clinics, safety briefings, seminars, and discussions sure to improve your flying and safety. Some of aviation’s best experts will be on hand to help us all grow in our knowledge of flight.

aviation eventExhibits:

Aviation product exhibitors—a major feature at AOPA Summits—will also be a part of our the AOPA Fly-Ins, giving pilots a chance to see, test, and buy new products and technologies. Display aircraft will also be on site from manufacturers and dealers to help you select your next aircraft!

Click on each city to learn more about exhibits.

Mark Baker and AOPA Leaders:

Meet the president and CEO of AOPA, Mark Baker, as well as other key leaders from AOPA. Ask important questions at a pancake breakfast and Pilot Town Hall, or just mingle with your AOPA staff to share ideas, learn more about your association, and tell us what you care most about in aviation.

Flying fun:

Meet fellow AOPA members and see their aircraft, go for a ride with one another, take a flight in a warbird or other special aircraft, and enjoy a weekend in the air. For friends or family who are not pilots, enjoy a “learn to fly” area and maybe even take a “first flight” with an instructor!

Food:

Enjoy two great meals with AOPA at your Fly-In. A pancake breakfast awaits the early birds who arrive in the morning, and a free lunch for every AOPA member will gather us around the center of the event—with live entertainment, a chance to mingle with other pilots, and just plain good food.

Volunteer:

Have fun and contribute to the safety and success of AOPA’s 2014 Regional Fly-ins by volunteering at a fly-in near you. Click to learn more.

AOPA is also bringing back its fly-in to Frederick, Maryland.

On Oct. 4, 2014, fly in or drive in to the Frederick Municipal Airport (FDK) and AOPA headquarters for “AOPA Homecoming.” This homecoming will be extra special as we celebrate AOPA’s 75th anniversary. Members are invited to come “home” and take part in a great party to celebrate 75 years of preserving and advancing general aviation.
