AOPA Live, AOPA’s newest way to communicate with pilots, saw phenomenal growth during 2010—its first full calendar year—topping one million views for the year. What began as a way to share the experience of attending the AOPA Aviation Summit has grown into something much larger, with 1,065,000 views.
“From safety and policy videos to features that expand on content in AOPA’s flagship magazine, AOPA Pilot, the variety of topics offered has struck a chord,” said AOPA President Craig Fuller. “AOPA Live has given us the opportunity to provide pilots with a richer experience and address topics that clearly interest them. We look forward to continuing, and even expanding, AOPA Live in 2011.”
In addition to the features offered throughout the year and extensive coverage of the AOPA Aviation Summit, AOPA Live is also there at other major general aviation events of the year, including Sun ’n Fun in Lakeland, Fla., in April, and EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wis., in July.
The AOPA Medical Advisory Board is the latest group to urge quick action on the proposed FAA rule that would allow thousands more pilots to fly without the need for a third class medical certificate.
Mexico has lifted a requirement that pilots of arriving and departing private general aviation flights use a third party provider to file advance passenger information system (APIS) manifests.
The Perlan Project is less than a year away from the first flight of a glider being built to ride waves near the edge of space. While construction continues in Oregon, the team’s pilots are staying proficient in more ordinary aircraft.
