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!"

A state-of-the art medical facility on remote Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay serves as a lasting memorial to the late Dr. David B. Nichols’ dedication to providing medical care to the community for 30 years. Now, Nichols’ aviation legacy—flying a Cessna 182 or Robinson R44 to the island every Thursday to provide that care—is set in stone.
Daher-Socata announced that it had installed the first Garmin G600 and GTN 750 avionics in one of its 2004 TBM 700C2 airplanes.
Even brief flight under actual conditions can expose how well your basic instrument flying is serving.
