AOPA Outreach staff
It’s a good thing AOPA Aviation Summit is three days long because you’re going to need at least that long to see everything our exhibitors are offering. Not only will you see the latest and greatest in products, services, and gear, but you’ll be able to interact and get answers to questions straight from the manufacturers themselves.
We know you come to Summit to become a better, safer pilot (and to have a lot of fun while doing it), but Aspen Avionics wants to know the reason behind your passion. Stop by their “Why I Fly Studio” to record your story about why you fly to help inspire future aviators.
Since you’re going to be busy snapping pictures, uploading to Facebook and tweeting (#AOPA12) about all the cool things you’ve seen and done at Summit, chances are you may need to charge you phone or check your email. Thanks to DTC Duat, you can do just that at our Internet Café and cell phone charging stations on the show hall floor.
After a long morning of exploring Airportfest outside the Palm Springs Convention Center, participating in seminars, and mingling with your pilots, you may need a little jolt to get you through our exciting evening social events. Stop by the CSC booth to see how you can get a free cup of cappuccino during the show.
There are so many happenings at Summit, but to find out what all our other exhibitors are announcing and doing, you’re just going to have to experience it for yourself. Register now.
