OK, so you've caught the bug; you're flying and you're hooked. Next comes the big question that bedevils nearly all pilots (and their spouses). Should I buy an aircraft? There's no doubt that owning has advantages over renting. But it also has drawbacks. And costs.
AOPA will answer some of the bigger questions that come up when trying to buy or rent, in a seminar at the twelfth annual AOPA Fly-in at AOPA headquarters in Frederick, Maryland, June 1. It is one of well over a dozen seminars being offered that day, on everything from spatial disorientation to plain old hangar talk. For a complete list of seminars, visit the AOPA Fly-In seminar page at AOPA Online.
As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
