With new experiential and interactive learning at AOPA Aviation Summit, you’ll connect with experts and gain new tools that will help you retain and recall critical information when you need it the most.
This Oct. 11 through 13, AOPA is bringing more than 100 hours of education to Palm Springs, Calif.; a schedule is now available online. Pilots will learn practical skills:
Meet in small groups
This year AOPA is offering roundtable discussions with health and medical experts where you can discuss how to keep or get your medical and preventive health tips. Pilots can also meet with several exhibitors in our Product Showcase area to learn more about new products and services in a more intimate setting.
Learn from peers
There is a special new community area in 2012 where pilots can share experiences and learn from one another. This community area will also feature inspirational stories and travel and adventure flying. Pilots will even get to vote for topics they want to have covered!
Check out the latest tools and technology
From the “Top 10 Technology Changes You’ll Face in the Next 10 Years” to iPad apps, the Learning Pavilion in the Exhibit Hall allows you to get fast updates on items critical to your flying.
Take part in these engaging educational sessions and leave Summit a safer, confident, more informed pilot. Check out the education schedule today.
FAA Information and Services
With solid instrument meteorological conditions extending hundreds of miles in every direction, a VFR-only pilot was stuck on top. The controller who helped him was among those honored March 4 with the Archie League Medal of Safety Award.
AOPA’s Air Safety Institute has awarded Flight Assist Commendations to 10 air traffic controllers who guided general aviation pilots to safe landings despite thunder storms, icing, mountainous terrain, and inoperative instruments and radios.
The FAA needs to be more efficient and complete critical projects, House leaders said during a hearing on FAA reauthorization.
