AOPA’s Center to Advance the Pilot Community (CAPComm) held the first of a planned monthly series of webinars Nov. 14. The webinar, with 631 registrants, covered what people need to start their own flying club.
Webinar speakers were Adam Smith, senior vice president of the Center to Advance the Pilot Community; Woody Cahall, vice president of AOPA’s Pilot Information Center; Garry Ackerman of the North Texas Flying Club; and Ray Speciale, an attorney and certified public accountant at Yodice Associates. A recording of the 90-minute webinar will be available for those who missed the live presentation.
