AOPA members flying in October could get a break on some handling fees. Signature Flight Support announced Sept. 20 that is waiving handling fees for AOPA members flying piston aircraft.
“Signature is dedicated to serving all aircraft and aviators, regardless of the size of the aircraft or the type of aviation fuel they use,” Signature Flight Support Chief Commercial Officer David Best said in the announcement. “We encourage AOPA members to give us a try on their next trip. Our October promotion makes it very easy for everyone to experience Signature’s world-class service.
“General aviation is the foundation of America’s aviation industry and we are excited to make this offering to the members of AOPA, the world’s largest general aviation membership organization.”
According to Signature, AOPA members with piston aircraft will need to present their membership card or AOPA credit card to have the handling fees waived for the visit. Signature also pointed out that “landing fees or other airport or government fees” are not included in the offer.
A state-of-the art medical facility on remote Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay serves as a lasting memorial to the late Dr. David B. Nichols’ dedication to providing medical care to the community for 30 years. Now, Nichols’ aviation legacy—flying a Cessna 182 or Robinson R44 to the island every Thursday to provide that care—is set in stone.
Daher-Socata announced that it had installed the first Garmin G600 and GTN 750 avionics in one of its 2004 TBM 700C2 airplanes.
Even brief flight under actual conditions can expose how well your basic instrument flying is serving.
