Long Beach, Calif., will be home base to attendees, exhibitors, and guests of AOPA Aviation Summit Nov. 11 through 13.
But before you pack that bag, here are some tips and information designed to help you, your friends, and your family enjoy this aviation wonderland to the fullest and take advantage of special savings.
Flying commercially to Long Beach? Consider JetBlue. You could receive a 5-percent discount as an attendee of AOPA Aviation Summit. Check out AOPA member car rental discount rates from Alamo, Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz for all your travel needs at Summit.
Book your hotel at any one of the 11 official AOPA Summit hotels. Make sure you book before Oct. 18, 2010, to be guaranteed the lowest rates at these hotels and take advantage of all of the fantastic networking opportunities with fellow attendees! Rates range from $99 to $229, and some hotels include a complimentary breakfast, Internet, and parking.
Use your AOPA World Points credit card to register for Summit and book your hotel. Bank of America, in partnership with AOPA, is awarding double points when you use your AOPA Visa or MasterCard for Summit. Don’t have a World Points card? Apply today.
When you register for Summit, you may choose from a 1-Day Exhibits Pass, a 1-Day Forums & Exhibits Pass, or a 3-Day Package. Don’t forget that these advance savings end in October, so register now. This year we have a new variety of social events that are sure to entertain you and provide lasting memories. Our social events have sold out at past shows, so don’t delay!

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?”
