What are the flight schools at PDK? Is there a GPS approach at Cleburne Municipal? If I fly into KAKH, will I be able to get a cab into town? I’m meeting a friend for Saturday lunch--where should we meet where there’s an airport restaurant?
Many pilots have come to rely on the information provided by AOPA Airports for their flight planning. Whether it’s selecting a rental car, checking fuel prices, reviewing approach procedures, or finding an FBO, the information is as close as your computer. The online version of AOPA Airports is continually updated, making the information that much more reliable and timely.
Recently redesigned, AOPA Airports is a tremendous member benefit, and access will continue for free online to AOPA members. What’s new is that AOPA members have the option to download AOPA Airports to their iPhones, BlackBerrys, and Windows Mobile smartphones. If you’re an electronic, plugged-in, hooked-up pilot, you’ll be set.
However, some pilots still prefer a hard copy of the directory in the cockpit or to browse through at home. For those members, AOPA will print a limited number of AOPA Airports in book format. Orders are being taken now for AOPA Airports, the book, and may be made online.
Order now for delivery in late December 2010. The cost of the printed directory is $19.95 for AOPA members and $39.95 for non-members. This printed version will have the most up-to-date information available at the time of printing, and you will still have the option of checking for updates online.
AOPA is committed to producing the most up-to-date, accurate, and complete airport directory possible, no matter which format a pilot chooses. Limited copies of AOPA Airports will be printed so make sure you reserve a copy today online or call 800/872-2672.
Pilot Safety and Skills
Pilots have formed a user group and launched a petition drive to save Runway 5/23 at Joplin Regional Airport in Joplin, Mo.
AOPA is urging Santa Rosa County officials who operate Peter Prince Field in Milton, Fla., to revise proposed rules to eliminate potential conflicts.
Your mission: Fly with eight F-15s to the Philippines, rejoin, refuel with air tankers, engage an unknown number of Red Air fighters, refuel again, and then return home to Okinawa. And fly with radio silence up to the first contact with the Red Air fighters.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
