An escape to the white sandy beaches and clear turquoise waters of Cancun or outdoor excursions in the Bahamas could be within reach with a bid on a travel package in the AOPA Foundation Night for Flight online auction.
A private jet charter flight from Synerjets can get you where you need to go, and golfers may be interested in stays at resorts near the green in French Lick, Ind., or on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
As AOPA has reported, “French Lick Resort is the nation’s newest premier golf destination.” The French Lick airport has been renovated and a new terminal built to provide “luxury air service for private, corporate, charter, and small commercial flights.”
You also can bid on experiences such as a wine country vacation or a private tour of President Ronald Reagan’s ranch near Santa Barbara, Calif.
All of the money raised will help the AOPA Foundation with its educational initiatives to support general aviation. Bidding ends Nov. 13 at 10 p.m. Eastern time.
Editor’s Note: Help spread the word about the AOPA Foundation online auction by squawking “Fly with Harrison Ford - Fly Home a Waco” on FlightAware.com.
Listen as air traffic controllers discuss what flight following can, and can't, do for you when transiting different airspace.
The most important part of the logbook is the inside, and your ability to log the information required by the regulations and capture any original signatures that may be necessary.
Pilot Skip Gibbs regularly uses his Bonanza A36 to bring medical volunteers and supplies to remote areas of Mexico. Just before sunset, Gibbs was flying to the historic city of El Fuerte in the state of Sinaloa where LIGA International Flying Doctors of Mercy has been doing good works since 1934.
