The International Council of Aircraft Owners and Pilots Associations (IAOPA) has an expanded presence at AERO this year, with half of its 68 member nations represented at the IAOPA booth, and special presentations addressing the mutual concerns of GA operations around the world.
AOPA and IAOPA president Craig Fuller is also present, representing GA interests in several forums, meeting with representatives from the European press, and building consensus among GA organizations in pursuit of common goals.
AOPA Pilot Editor at Large Tom Horne has worked at AOPA since the early 1980s. He began flying in 1975 and has an airline transport pilot and flight instructor certificates. He’s flown everything from ultralights to Gulfstreams and ferried numerous piston airplanes across the Atlantic.
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.
