Will you be attending the Republican National Convention Aug. 27 through 30 or the Democratic National Convention Sept. 4 through 6?
AOPA President Craig Fuller and the association’s government affairs team will be present at both conventions, organizing events to demonstrate the importance of aviation and the engagement of the general aviation community. The association would like to know about members who are attending so the attendees can join GA-friendly lawmakers and other political figures who affect issues important to pilots and the GA industry at convention events.
Association staff will use the Tampa, Fla., and Charlotte, N.C., conventions to help educate decision makers about the economic value of GA and its role in the transportation infrastructure. AOPA encourages those planning to attend one or both conventions to fill out a brief questionnaire with their information so that the association can contact them to be included in critical discussions of the future of GA.
The Tucson Soaring Club is trying to grow the sport by training the next generation of glider pilots.
Able Flight has received and $8,000 check from the AOPA Foundation.
Preheating is about far more than just oil temperature. Proper preheating involves heating the entire engine, so that all critical engine parts can be brought into the ‘safe’ temperature range.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
