A general aviation flight can mean access to proper treatment for a sick child, life for an abandoned pet, or hope for victims of natural disasters. Join AOPA and public benefit flying organizations at AOPA Aviation Summit to find out about how you can use your passion for flying to help others.
Air Care Alliance President Lindy Kirkland will moderate the forum “Beyond the $100 Hamburger: How to get involved in public benefit flying” Thursday, Nov. 5, from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. at Summit in Tampa, Fla.
Tens of thousands of volunteer pilots, ground volunteers, and other individuals serve their communities using the capabilities of GA. Attend this informative panel discussion to learn more about the five general types of public benefit flying and the many organizations that provide opportunities to get involved. Rol Murrow, founder of the Emergency Volunteer Air Corps (EVAC) and co-founder of the Air Care Alliance; Rick Durden, author and pilot for LightHawk; Jon Wehrenberg, co-founder and president of Pilots N Paws; and Jeff Kahn, member of the board of directors of Angel Flight East, will answer your questions about using your flying skills for a greater good.
Whether it’s for medical transports, pet rescues, or search-and-rescue missions, pilots are making a difference across the nation. Find out what you can do to help at AOPA Aviation Summit, Nov. 5 through 7. Register today!
A state-of-the art medical facility on remote Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay serves as a lasting memorial to the late Dr. David B. Nichols’ dedication to providing medical care to the community for 30 years. Now, Nichols’ aviation legacy—flying a Cessna 182 or Robinson R44 to the island every Thursday to provide that care—is set in stone.
Daher-Socata announced that it had installed the first Garmin G600 and GTN 750 avionics in one of its 2004 TBM 700C2 airplanes.
Even brief flight under actual conditions can expose how well your basic instrument flying is serving.
