Looking to fly for a living? AOPA Aviation Summit 2010 in Long Beach, Calif., Nov. 11 through 13 has opportunities you won't want to miss.
Make sure to attend the Nov. 13 forum, "Flying for a Living: Strategies for Getting Hired." The forum will feature a panel discussion with an airline pilot, a regional jet training expert, and a career counselor and résumé expert. Brush up your resume and bring it, together with your questions, to the Flight Training booth between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. Nov. 13, for free counseling with Judy Tarver, vice president of fltops.com and a former human resources executive with American Airlines.
Keynote events will look to the future of the industry. On Nov. 13, formal naval aviator John Petersen will focus on major general aviation trends that are driving propulsion, fuel and power, materials, avionics, air traffic control, and demographic and environmental concerns, all of which are converging to shape the future of our industry in "GA in 2020.” The "The Future of Flight" keynote on Nov. 12 will provide a glimpse of the flight experience yet to come. Representatives from Virgin Galactic, Icon Aircraft, and Terrafugia will be the featured speakers.
Other events for future career pilots include "NextGen: What Does It Mean to Me?" presented by AOPA's government affairs team, "Thinking Small to Avoid Big Mistakes," and Yodice Associates' "What Every Pilot Should Know About FAA Enforcement.”

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?”
