After you’ve experienced the excitement of AOPA Aviation Summit, just minutes from downtown Tampa, Fla., slow down for a relaxed vacation on the Islands of the Bahamas.
AOPA’s first annual AOPA Aviation Summit fly-out to the Bahamas offers pilots the opportunity to reach places most tourists never see on an island-hopping adventure with their aircraft. Take a flight over the crystal clear water to experience the beauty of the islands and meet other pilots traveling from Summit.
The Bahamas, only 46 nautical miles from Florida, has much to do and see on its 700 islands: world-class shopping, fine dining, exciting nightlife, or the simple pleasures of a day at sea. And you can enjoy more of what makes the Bahamas the most popular vacation destination from Florida when you explore the islands in your aircraft.
Take your airplane on a spirited adventure for some camaraderie and friendly competition on the Bahamas Treasure Hunt with Air Journey, or escape to a secluded beach retreat and experience island life at New Bight, Cat Island, on the Rediscover the Bahamas tour with Caribbean Sky Tours.
Register for AOPA Aviation Summit today! Summit, the new look and feel for AOPA Expo, will take place Nov. 5 through 7 in Tampa, Fla. It’s a show you won’t want to miss—see you there!
A touch of history, affordable flying, unique sightseeing, a good meal, and a community of pilots: Isn’t that what general aviation is all about?
Getting the job done on the local and national levels requires long-term planning, a hands-on approach, and keeping the effort moving, said Sean Collins, AOPA’s Eastern regional manager.
Deep in the dense, moss-draped, oak forest of Amelia Island is a luxurious plantation resort. Check out this Florida destination while you are in the Southeast for AOPA's St. Simons, Georgia, Fly-In on Nov. 8.
