Whether you're buying or selling an airplane, or improving the aircraft that you already have, AOPA Member Products allows you to take advantage of exclusive members-only discounts. AOPA Member Products provides financing, insurance, and title services tailored specifically to meet the needs of aircraft owners.
When you use AOPA Member Products, you help AOPA offer more membership benefits.

Visit the Web site ( www.aopa.org/info/ownership/) for more information.
AOPA offers many services useful to aircraft buyers and sellers. One of the most valuable is AOPA's aircraft valuation service provided by Vref. Buyers and sellers can easily perform an aircraft valuation online ( www.aopa.org/members/vref/).
Vref provides performance and specs, typical add-ons, and popular mods and conversions for each aircraft model. There is no need to search elsewhere. Vref calculates the "percentage of new." This lets you know instantly what the aircraft is currently trading at when compared to its original new price. Airframe time is listed for each model year, plus a correction factor if your airplane is above or below these numbers. You can get the information you need with a quick glance, or use the expanded features for a more detailed appraisal. Plus, there is expanded information on each market in the market data and recent airworthiness directives section.
You'll find pertinent market comments including the number of each model traded (activity) as well as the number built and the number listed on the FAA registry. At a glance, you'll know the recent airworthiness directives and what they pertain to. All this information is presented in an easy-to-use format.
Vref is AOPA's sole source for aircraft pricing, and dealers worldwide, whether they sell Gulfstreams or Piper Cubs, rely on Vref for accurate pricing information.
*Ever wonder what Vref ( vee ref) stands for? In addition to approach speed on some larger airplanes, it stands for value reference.

AOPA Products and Services,
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)?
The Aircraft Spotlight feature looks at an airplane type and evaluates it across six areas of particular interest to flying clubs and their members: Operating Cost, Maintenance, Insurability, Training, Cross-Country, and Fun Factor.
