When AOPA recently asked members for ideas about boosting the pilot population, many responded that rising costs in aviation are a significant barrier.
“We recognize that rising costs are a factor in the declining pilot population,” said Greg Romano, AOPA vice president of public relations. “That’s why AOPA is working to reduce the cost of flying on several fronts: on Capitol Hill, through discounted pilot products and services, and by offering flight training scholarships.”
Cost has always been a factor, but it’s not the only one. AOPA wants to know your creative ideas for getting more people interested in flying. In the 5,000-plus responses we’ve received so far, we’ve heard clever ideas ranging from new ways to develop communities among local pilots to opportunities to enhance the flight training experience.
