Aerobatic pilot Patty Wagstaff will speak at the 2013 Teacher’s Day event on July 30 at EAA AirVenture 2013 in Oshkosh, Wis.
The fifth annual Teachers’ Day is sponsored by Build A Plane. The free event provides teachers with ideas and insights about how to integrate aviation into a school curriculum.
Wagstaff is a three-time national aerobatic champion and International Aerospace Hall of Fame inductee, as well as a six-time member of the U.S. Aerobatic Team.
Teachers can register for the event online. Participants also will receive a free wristband for one day’s attendance at EAA AirVenture, plus free parking and lunch. The event will qualify for one graduate credit through Viterbo University.
AOPA Technical Editor Jill W. Tallman is an instrument-rated private pilot who owns a Piper Cherokee 140.
Experimental Aircraft Association,
Pilots in Washington State have another voice advocating for them on airport, economic, legislative, and public perception issues: the Washington State Aviation Alliance.
Under a current Washington law, only 10 percent of the aircraft excise taxes that aircraft owners pay go to the Washington State Division of Aeronautics, while the other 90 percent go into the general fund. AOPA is advocating for legislation that would direct 100 percent of the tax to aviation use.
AOPA and the National Business Aviation Association have jointly filed an amicus, or friend of the court, brief in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals as part of the ongoing legal battle over the future of Santa Monica Municipal Airport.
