For many pilots, walking into their local fixed-base operator is like Norm walking into the bar on the TV series “Cheers”: Everybody knows your name and gives a welcoming shout-out or friendly roasting.
Expand your network of aviation friends at AOPA Aviation Summit in Palm Springs, Calif., Oct. 11 through 13. You can share experiences and learn from one another by swapping flying stories, give or receive advice on aircraft ownership, and develop a network of passionate aviators from airports around the country.
Summit is also a great venue to learn about different aircraft types or catch up with those who fly the same airplanes. This year, AOPA has partnered with the American Bonanza Society, who will co-locate their show at Palm Springs during Summit.
Register for Summit, and prepare to expand your aviation community to new heights. Wouldn’t it be nice, after a long cross-country, to be welcomed at your destination just as you would at your home airport?

A collision near Frederick Municipal Airport Oct. 23 claimed three lives and left the local aviation community–including AOPA–in mourning.
The Type Club Coalition is the latest group to join AOPA in urging a quick review of proposed reforms to the third class medical.
Aerospace and defense giant Lockheed Martin stirred the pot with an Oct. 15 announcement that compact fusion could power vehicles, even aircraft, within a decade. Skeptics were quick to speak up, while Lockheed filed for patents and hopes to find partners in government, academia, and industry.
