Flying to Canada in a private aircraft can be one of a pilot's most enjoyable adventures. From the mountains of British Columbia, to Nova Scotia, and to the vast far Northwest Territories, Canada provides spectacular views and great locations that often can be reached only by light aircraft. Here is a brief list of how to prepare for a trip to Canada.
Answers to frequently asked questions about your AOPA membership
Q: I'd like to give an AOPA membership as a gift to a friend. Can I do that?
A: Yes. Giving friends or relatives a membership in AOPA provides them with information and tools that help them fly safely and get more enjoyment out of flying.
Your gift recipient will receive a special gift card and an AOPA pilot's cap. Use our convenient online form or call Member Services to help someone special celebrate a holiday or any special event.
Q: Could I be putting myself at risk flying without renters insurance?
A: Yes, you could be putting yourself at risk. But, most important, you're putting yourself in financial jeopardy when flying without renters insurance. The average cost of an aviation claim is $30,000, in addition to legal fees, which average $20,000 per accident but can reach hundreds of thousands of dollars, depending on the circumstances. Why take the financial risk when AOPA Insurance Agency offers renter's policies for as low as $90? Call the AOPA Insurance Agency to make sure you are covered, at 800/622-2672.
