Share your excitement about flying at a good old-fashioned political-style rally Thursday, Nov. 5, at AOPA Aviation Summit in Tampa, Fla.
General aviation is facing one of the greatest sets of challenges in its 100-year history. So join forces to help protect your freedom to fly at the first GA Serves America Rally. West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin III, an avid pilot and 40-year AOPA member, will speak about the importance of GA.
Join Manchin, AOPA, and Master of Ceremonies Jim Coyne, president of the National Air Transportation Association ( NATA), for a hand-clapping, foot-stomping good time with live music and plenty of excitement. Hear from AOPA President Craig Fuller, and watch a video message from national GA Serves America spokesman Harrison Ford.
The future of general aviation needs you! Don’t let a proposal for costly new user fees, efforts to dramatically increase the cost of flying, or urban pressures on small airports keep you from taking to the sky. Come to the GA Serves America rally at the center of the Tampa Convention Center Exhibit Hall around Center Stage at noon on Nov. 5.
As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
