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!
As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
