Have you ever had an ongoing debate at your local airport and needed an outside perspective? Want someone to ask about the best $100 hamburger stops? Looking to learn new flying techniques, get aircraft ownership tips, or find maintenance advice? Visit AOPA's newly revamped Aviation Forums to talk to AOPA members across the country about topics ranging from medical certification to instrument flying. It's a great opportunity to share your wisdom and learn from others.
"Glad that these boards are back, especially since I'm actually getting closer to being ready to budget flying lessons; will have lots of questions to ask!" wrote one member.
Registration is free but only available to AOPA members [ click here to join] and lets you post and edit your own messages, respond to others' messages, send private messages, create a buddy list, and more. You also can post one-time or recurring aviation events (or even birthdays) in the forum calendar.
Said another member, "Well, there goes my productivity at work...again! Ya baby!"

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?”
