Learn about the top technology changes that you’ll face in the next 10 years, get tips from air traffic controllers, learn about flight training scholarship opportunities, see what weather options are featured on iPads now, and find out more about AOPA’s FlyQ. In addition to industry experts, pilot and comedian Dave Coulier, AOPA Editor in Chief Tom Haines, and AOPA Vice President of Air Traffic Services and Modernization Heidi Williams will talk about what’s new in aviation throughout the show. (See the Learning Pavilion seminar schedule.)
Network with fellow pilots through meet-ups tailored to your region and type of flying in the exhibit hall’s interactive lounge. Multiple meet-ups are scheduled including Women in Aviation and military. Plus, meet your AOPA regional manager and other pilots from your area.
