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 Flying Physicians Association (FPA) has become the latest group to lend support to third-class medical reform and urge government officials to speed up their review of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). The NPRM would expand the number of pilots who could fly without needing to obtain a third-class medical certificate, a standard that has been successfully used by sport pilots for a decade.
California pilot Christopher Braun has created a revamped version of the cleco plier that is said to be lighter and more ergonomic.
There is no shortage of pilots in eastern Washington, but there does seem to be a scarcity of clubs in that part of the country.
