Grab your cowboy boots and hat and get ready for some of that big Texas hospitality—AOPA Aviation Summit is coming to Fort Worth, Texas, Oct. 10 through 12. Registration is open, so you can take advantage of special pricing discounts.
Everything is bigger in Texas, and AOPA Aviation Summit is no different. This year’s event will be bigger and better, with a renewed focus on educational opportunities (more than 100 hours of seminars will be offered) to ensure that you take home more of what it takes to fly the way you’ve always dreamed.
AOPA is offering five daily educational tracks: pilot skills, maintenance, medical/legal, technology, and leading luminaries. Seminars will be led by experts including John and Martha King of King School, Sporty’s John Zimmerman, airshow performer Michael Goulian, aviation humorist Rod Machado, Beechcraft expert Adrian Eichhorn, and Savvy Aviator founder Mike Busch. Plus, AOPA Editor in Chief Tom Haines, AOPA Foundation President Bruce Landsberg, and AOPA Center to Advance the Pilot Community Senior Vice President Adam Smith will be presenting as well.
In addition to the seminars, enjoy social events such as the Friday Chow Down in Cowtown, a pancake breakfast, and a hangar dance. Airportfest returns, with dozens of aircraft on display for you to peruse.
This year’s summit is one you won’t want to miss. Three-day packages cost $300; a Combination Show Pass, $200; and Exhibits and Seminars Day Pass $55. Social event tickets are also available separately.
