What better way to experience AOPA Aviation Summit than by volunteering to help make it happen?
We need volunteers Nov. 4 through 7 to help park the more than 1,000 aircraft that will be flying in to Peter O. Knight and Tampa Executive, direct the flow of traffic and people, and help provide ground transportation. Get a behind-the-scenes look at how we pull off the show and be a part of the excitement by volunteering today.
If you work five hours or more, you’ll receive an AOPA Aviation Summit Forums & Exhibits pass (a $50 value)! Those who help us for three or more shifts will also receive a special certificate of gratitude from AOPA.
Summit, the new look and feel for AOPA Expo, will take place Nov. 5 through 7 in Tampa, Fla. Sign up now to become a volunteer! After helping out, continue the fun by attending forums, taking part in Airportfest, dining at the Florida Aquarium, and more! Throughout the weekend, you’ll have the opportunity to exchange ideas with the key industry and government leaders whose decisions are shaping general aviation’s future at a pivotal time in our history.
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?”
