Protect your airport with AOPA and Aviation North Expo

September 24, 2008

Alaska pilots know how critical safe, accessible airports are to their state. That’s why AOPA is encouraging pilots to come to Aviation North Expo, Oct. 16 through 18, to learn more about how they can become part of AOPA’s Airport Support Network (ASN) and help ensure the future of the airports they depend on.

The event will include an Oct. 17 presentation by ASN Director Jennifer Storm covering issues that include why every airport needs an ASN volunteer to prevent problems before they become crises, tips for identifying and serving stakeholders, ways to get the larger community involved, and ways to identify and expand an airport’s positive economic impact.

During the Expo, be sure to take in “Mastering Takeoffs and Landings” and “Top 5 Mistakes Pilots Make” seminars from the AOPA Air Safety Foundation and meet Tom George, AOPA’s regional representative for Alaska.
