Don’t miss out on the greatest aviation celebration of the year— AOPA Aviation Summit in Long Beach, Calif. Registration is open, offering up to 25-percent savings to those who register early. Enjoy educational forums, captivating speakers, the hottest aircraft on the market, and special events at Summit this year.
A notable highlight for this year’s Summit is a celebration of aviation brought to you by the AOPA Foundation.
This special event will take place on the RMS Queen Mary and is dedicated to safeguarding the future of general aviation. Join AOPA and aviation notables for an evening of entertainment and fine dining.
"The AOPA Foundation has created a new event that allows members to give a tax deductible donation to something we all feel passionate about--keeping pilots safe and safeguarding the future of GA,” said AOPA President Craig Fuller. “We cannot assume our freedom to fly; each person has to preserve and protect it."
Ticket price includes a donation to the AOPA Foundation, the 501(c)(3) charitable giving arm of AOPA, dedicated to funding air safety education, preserving airports, growing the pilot population, and improving the image of GA.
AOPA Aviation Summit will take place Nov. 11 through 13.
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?”
