Look for exciting new changes at AOPA.org in the coming weeks. We will be launching a redesigned website, making it easier for you to use our flight planning tools, find topic-specific subject reports and forms, complete online safety training, manage your membership, and get the latest news and updates on the industry and AOPA’s initiatives from protecting your freedom to fly to growing the pilot population.
The website will feature a mobile-friendly design, more powerful search engine, and new, easier-to-use navigation to allow you to find the information you are seeking quickly from your smartphone, tablet, or computer. The new platform powering the redesigned website will take advantage of current and future technologies, allowing AOPA to offer continued enhancements and functionality to the site.
When the website launches, please let us know your thoughts. AOPA’s Member Services and Pilot Information Center specialists are already testing the website and are ready to answer any questions you may have. They are standing by Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern to help you one-on-one by phone (800/USA-AOPA).
AOPA Director of eMedia and Online Managing Editor Alyssa J. Miller has worked at AOPA since 2004 and is an active flight instructor.
Will declaring an emergency get you in trouble? AOPA Air Safety Institute Senior Vice President George Perry urges pilots not to worry about paperwork and to listen to their “Spidey sense.”
AOPA’s message that the cost to equip is too high and must drop substantially was heard loud and clear at a “call to action” summit on ADS-B.
USA Today has offered its readers sensationalistic and incomplete journalism with its latest story targeting general aviation, according to AOPA. The Oct. 28 article purports to examine the potential for post-crash aircraft fires.
