With forum titles such as Engine Failure After Takeoff, Spin Myths, What Went Wrong?, Real World IFR, and Night Flying Safety, just to name a few, it’s obvious safety is the name of the game at this year’s AOPA Aviation Summit being held Nov. 11 through 13 in Long Beach, Calif.
Pilot safety starts with education, and AOPA invites you to join AOPA Air Safety Foundation’s Bruce Landsberg and JJ Greenway, together with a variety of speakers such as Barry Schiff, Adrian Eichhorn, Andy Miller, and Thomas A. Horne, as they tackle key safety topics designed to help you fly smart and stay safe.
No matter your proficiency level, our safety forums will arm you with critical safety knowledge that will serve you long after AOPA Aviation Summit has come to a close.

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?”
