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.
Pilot responsibilities include requesting clarification or amendment whenever the pilot does not fully understand a clearance or considers it unacceptable from a safety standpoint.
The caustic combination of crosswind and an ice-crusted runway sent the aircraft skidding into a snow bank built up by plowing along the runway edge.
AOPA expressed concern in a meeting with town officials from East Hampton, New York, that restrictions proposed to curb airport noise “overwhelmingly” generated by transient commercial flights would unfairly burden traditional airport users.
