AOPA has successfully negotiated price reductions at two of the official AOPA Aviation Summit hotels in Tampa, Fla.
The Hyatt Regency Tampa and Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk have agreed to lower their prices for the AOPA Aviation Summit room block for a limited time—prices are guaranteed until Oct. 13.
Each hotel in the official room block, which includes the Hyatt and Sheraton as well as Embassy Suites Tampa Downtown, Tampa Marriott Waterside, and Westin Tampa Harbour Island, comes with a lowest price guarantee during the week of Summit. In addition, when members and guests book through the official block, they will not be denied their reservation should the hotel overbook their rooms.
Prices now range from as low as $139 for the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk, along scenic Hillsborough River, to $188 for the Marriott Waterside and Embassy Suites properties. Guests are only required to reserve with one night’s deposit that is used 72 hours prior to check-in. Staying at official AOPA hotels offers attendees the advantage of complimentary shuttle transportation to the Friday night reception at the Florida Aquarium and dinner at the Riverwalk. And when you reserve an official AOPA hotel, you have an opportunity to mingle with your fellow pilots and exhibitors and develop long-lasting friendships.
To book your hotel, go to the AOPA Aviation Summit Web site and click on Housing. You may also download a form and mail it, or call 888/222-5562 (international callers use +1 801/505-4142) and speak to the AOPA Housing Bureau. Prices are guaranteed until Oct. 13.

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?”
