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?

Tickets for the 2014 Red Bull Air Race World Championship series, including two U.S. races, are now on sale.
Your mission: Fly with eight F-15s to the Philippines, rejoin, refuel with air tankers, engage an unknown number of Red Air fighters, refuel again, and then return home to Okinawa. And fly with radio silence up to the first contact with the Red Air fighters.
The Aviation Safety Reporting System is a voluntary safety reporting program that allows airmen to make anonymous reports to the government about issues encountered in aviation, with anonymity allowing the airman to be candid–even when their actions may have been a violation of the regulations.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
