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.

Contemplating IFR flight scenarios for airports like Delta, Utah, is excellent review for any instrument pilot. That's because briefing for a flight into and out of Delta covers bases unlikely to be encountered on your next two-hour tour of your home field approaches.
What’s your heading?” Rare is the student pilot who hasn’t let distraction, or turbulence, spoil a slick stint of steady flying. Then you vow to do a better job next time of keeping track of the messages your instruments are displaying.
Helicopter training is generally very safe. So why do run-on takeoffs and landings feel so wrong?
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
