This year AOPA is hosting Aviation Summit in sunny Long Beach, Calif. With exciting forums, captivating speakers, and the latest and greatest in aviation technology on display, attending Summit is a natural for any pilot. But it’s not only pilots who should attend. Here are just a few reasons to bring a guest this year.
Summit offers a variety of entertaining events that are fun for the whole family, including Airportfest and social events such as a Friday Night Block Party, an AOPA Foundation event aboard the Queen Mary, and exclusive Thursday night dinners with aviation celebrities.
There are special one-of-a-kind forums on fly-in destinations, learning to fly, and inspirational flying stories that aviators and nonaviators alike can enjoy.
Stay at one of the many beautiful Long Beach hotels and enjoy 5 miles of white sandy beach, fine dining, and shopping. Take a short 45 minute journey to Disneyland and Universal Studios or hop aboard a boat for a relaxing one-hour cruise to Catalina Island. And that’s just a sample of all the exciting activities Long Beach has to offer.
So remember, bring a guest to Summit this year—they are sure to have a fantastic time. Register today.
