Where can you learn about the latest aviation products, aircraft, and state of the GA industry all in one location? AOPA Expo 2005 at the Tampa Convention Center and Peter O. Knight Airport in Tampa offers all that with more than 500 exhibit booths, 70 aircraft on display, and 75 hours of value-packed seminars. New educational seminars plus a revamped aircraft display make this year's Expo a pilot's dream destination.
"AOPA Expo is a place where pilots can see and learn about the latest and greatest in general aviation," said AOPA President Phil Boyer. "Every year pilots tell me that there were more aircraft, exhibitor booths, seminars, and opportunities to network than they ever imagined would be possible in a three-day event."
If you are interested in cutting-edge aviation technology, check out this year's new educational Technology Track that includes seminars like "WAAS: What Does It Mean for IFR?" "Flying Glass Cockpits in General Aviation," and "GPS Approaches, Navigation Databases, and Charts."
But that's not all AOPA has lined up to satisfy the gadget guru in many pilots. Major avionics companies will fill the exhibit hall with products and accessories to make sure you and your aircraft are decked out with the latest equipment. DTC DUAT will help you stay connected at its Internet Cafe in the exhibit hall, where you can obtain a weather briefing or check e-mail.
Make sure you allow time in your busy seminar and exhibit schedule to take in AOPA's beefed-up aircraft display. For the first time ever in the aircraft display area, you can enjoy interactive hands-on seminars and product demonstrations. You can also get a look at the latest light-sport aircraft on the market. Free shuttle transportation will be provided round-trip from the Tampa Convention Center to the aircraft display during the show, compliments of Cessna Aircraft Company.
AOPA Expo 2005 takes place November 3 through 5. Register in advance to receive discounts of 10 to 30 percent. For more information about Expo and to see a list of seminars and exhibits, visit AOPA Online.
