AOPA Aviation Summit,
Pilot Safety and Skills,
A general aviation advocate hopes that a new tour will help give the industry a shot in the arm and attract more to become pilots.
Takeoff is consistently the phase of flight with the second-highest number of pilot-related accidents.
A student pilot flying a single-engine trainer at modest altitudes has different weather-information needs than a corporate pilot planning a trip in the flight levels. But before either aviator can plan a route or make a proper go/no-go decision, both need a macro view of the weather.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
