"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.
