Young pilots looking for a career in aviation are invited to a free career conference on March 23 in Ft. Worth, Texas.
The session, which was organized by FAPA.aero and sponsored by US Aviation Academy, is at Higher Power Aviation. All current and future pilots are welcome, once they complete a free registration at FAPA.aero.
Multiple educational sessions are expected, including a focus on loans, future hiring prospects, and more. Flight schools also will be on hand for students to ask questions and talk to admissions representatives.
American Eagle Airlines is giving away two free round-trip tickets to an attendee, as a way to encourage them to a visit a flight school of their choosing.
Flight Training Editor Ian J. Twombly joined AOPA in 2003 and is an instrument flight instructor.
AOPA told lawmakers that a tax-abatement bill introduced in Nevada would stimulate aviation business and make more services available to members.
New legislation in both houses of Congress would allow thousands of pilots to fly without a third class medical and offer new protections for GA pilots.
Two bills that would increase aviation fuel taxes and tap some proceeds for nonaviation purposes could place New Mexico in conflict with federal grant guarantees.
