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.
The FAA has asked the National Transportation Safety Board to review a judge’s ruling reversing a fine it levied in an unmanned-aircraft case.
The Tucson Soaring Club is trying to grow the sport by training the next generation of glider pilots.
Able Flight has received and $8,000 check from the AOPA Foundation.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
