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.
Nextant Aerospace, adding a remanufactured King Air to its remanufactured Hawker 400 offering, says the King Air (Nextant G90XT) will fly early next year.
Greg Pecoraro, AOPA vice president of airports and state advocacy, brought Indiana aviation community members up to date on the association’s initiatives.
Elbit Systems has upgraded infrared systems that see through darkness and weather for nearly visual landings and takeoffs, as well as taxi operations.
