For those who are members of Pilot Protection Services, we at AOPA really hope and expect that you are receiving good value for the dollars you pay over and above your basic membership dues. With that in mind, I’d like to talk about value in the context of the real world of airman medical certification at this time.

March 7, 2014 ePilot Training Tip: 'Arrival or through flight'
With a closing speed of about 900 knots, Air Force pilots on a training mission have seconds to aim and shoot heat-seeking and radar guided missiles at a drone target. Their success came from repeated rehearsals. But as author Larry Brown writes, “there is nothing like the real thing to gain experience.”
The GAO released its report “Aviation Workforce: Current and Future Availability of Airline Pilots,” and general aviation has a strong interest in its findings.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
