It’s been said that “a good pilot is always learning,” and this year at AOPA Aviation Summit in Long Beach, Calif., you can choose from more educational forums than ever before.
With topics ranging from “Fast Track to Your Pilot Certificate” and “Mastering Takeoffs and Landings” to “Engine Failure after Takeoff” and “Buying Your First Airplane,” the forums offer something for every skill level. So whether you’ve just passed your checkride or you’re looking for an exciting new place to fly, stop by one of the many forums held multiple times each day and listen to top aviation experts, ask that burning question you’ve always wanted to know, and take a step toward becoming a safer, more proficient pilot.
A list of forum topics can be found online, so choose the ones that best suit you and register today! AOPA Aviation Summit will take place in Long Beach, Calif., Nov. 11 through 13. —By Angela Ashton
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?”
