From the return of the highly anticipated Parade of Planes, a Palm Springs exclusive, to resort parties and outdoor adventures, AOPA Aviation Summit in sunny Palm Springs, Calif., offers an experience like no other.
Enjoy brand-new events including a companion lunch where your guest can meet and mingle with other nonpilots over great food and entertainment, a fresh daily lunch on the East Lawn of the Convention Center with special speakers each day, an after-hours networking lounge at the Spa Resort & Casino, A Night for Flight benefit reception and dinner at the Riviera Palm Springs Resort, AOPA’s California Dreamin’ Resort Party offering an evening full of relaxation and fun, a Touch and Go Breakfast with some of the most well-known names in aviation, and even a Wild West Desert Adventure at the Metate Canyon.
New learning opportunities offer more than 100 hours of engaging education that uses hands-on demonstrations and practice activities to help you retain and recall the information when you need it most.
All of these new, remarkable events plus more than 400 booths in the exhibit hall and an aircraft display at the Palm Springs Convention Center make this year’s Summit a can’t-miss.
Plus, this year, the American Bonanza Society convention will be held at AOPA Aviation Summit! The convention will feature a special set of BeechTrack seminars and many other activities for American Bonanza Society members to enjoy.
Don’t miss out on the fun and excitement; come connect with fellow pilots and take your flying to the next level. Register now.
American Bonanza Society members register at the society’s website.
The Aircraft Spotlight feature looks at an airplane type and evaluates it across six areas of particular interest to flying clubs and their members: Operating Cost, Maintenance, Insurability, Training, Cross-Country, and Fun Factor.
The quiet exit of two companies from the fractional aircraft market provides further evidence that this is an uncertain path to profit.
You should stick with someone you trust for the long-term maintenance of your aircraft assuming he or she is skilled and thorough. That said, there is significant value to getting a fresh pair of eyes on your airplane every so often.
