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.
More resources are available for those who want to create or join a flying club on the AOPA website. Join the AOPA Flying Club Network Facebook group. And for further questions, email AOPA.
AOPA eNewsletter and Social Media Editor Benét J. Wilson joined AOPA in 2011. She is working on her private pilot certificate.
As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
The Aircraft Spotlight feature looks at an airplane type and evaluates it across six areas of particular interest to flying clubs and their members: Operating Cost, Maintenance, Insurability, Training, Cross-Country, and Fun Factor.
