To accommodate those affected by Hurricane Irene, AOPA has extended the AOPA Aviation Summit pre-registration discount through Sept. 9.
It is our hope that this extension affords those still dealing with massive cleanup efforts and loss of power the opportunity to register for Summit without the burden of additional costs.
Featuring a world class exhibit hall, more than 60 hours of educational seminars, and exciting aviation social events, AOPA Aviation Summit provides a firsthand look at all that AOPA does on behalf of general aviation and its members. Those wishing to register may do so online or by phone at 800/872-2672.
Our thoughts go out to everyone still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Irene.
Collaboration between the German government, academia, and airplane manufacturers may make future aircraft cabins more protective of pilots and passengers. The Safety Box team plans to apply auto racing technology to general aviation.
A father and his 14-year-old son were helping another pilot ferry a newly purchased aircraft from California to their home field in Virginia. The three made an overnight stop in Albuquerque before flying on to Illinois for fuel. But shortly after they parked the aircraft in Marion, Ill., they were approached by as many as 18 uniformed and non-uniformed law enforcement officers who came running toward the airplane.
