One item up for auction is SimCom Beech Baron recurrent training.
From private or commercial to recurrent training or special ratings, pilots could get a deal on training packages in the AOPA Foundation’s A Night for Flight online auction.
All of the leading bids so far are below the training packages values, which means you could save on training while still supporting efforts to protect and promote general aviation.
The online auction features eight training packages: table-mounted Redbird simulator, PD dual-screen flight simulator, SimCom recurrent training in a Beech Baron or Cessna 300/400 series aircraft, commercial certificate course, seaplane rating, a Saitek Pro Flight Cessna bundle, Saab column yoke, and a King Schools private pilot kit. The private pilot kit also could make a great gift for the prospective pilot in your life.
All of the proceeds in the A Night for Flight Auction help the AOPA Foundation preserve and improve community airports, improve general aviation’s safety record through increased pilot education, grow the pilot population to ensure GA’s future, and educate the public on the benefits of GA. Register to begin bidding and sign up for email notifications when a new product is added to the auction. You’ll want to stay up to date on the latest items. Aircraft and other aviation memorabilia are being added regularly!
Future of GA,
AOPA VOICES STRONG SUPPORT FOR LEGISLATION REQUIRING FAA TO REVISE THIRD CLASS MEDICAL REQUIREMENTS
AOPA Foundation President Bruce Landsberg has challenged AOPA President Mark Baker to a dogfight. The battle? To see who can bring in the most "Hat in the Ring Society" donors before the end of the year to support aviation safety, promote community airports, and encourage more people to fly.
Youths ages 13 through 18 who are members of the AOPA AV8RS program can now apply for scholarships to help them achieve their aviation dreams.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
