Pilot town halls scheduled for 2013

Will AOPA fly in to an airport near you in 2013?

AOPA President Craig Fuller will meet with pilots across the nation and discuss the issues that most directly affect pilots’ freedom to fly in a series of pilot town hall gatherings, kicking off 2013 with an event at Chicago’s DuPage Airport March 21.

In these events, located in major metropolitan areas, Fuller will share his perspective on the current state of general aviation and AOPA's initiatives to grow the pilot population; discuss AOPA's efforts in Washington, D.C.; and highlight key efforts around the country to protect airports, prevent tax hikes, and build the GA community. Other scheduled locations include Houston, Minneapolis, Boston, Denver, and Atlanta. Find details in the online schedule, and check back for updates to find out if Fuller is coming to your area.

The pilot town hall gathering on March 21 will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Travel Express Aviation at DuPage Airport in West Chicago. The event is free, but RSVP by email. If you are flying in, aircraft parking is available at Travel Express Aviation, which may be contacted by phone at 630/584-6462 or by email to make arrangements.
