As a pilot or aspiring pilot, you know, there’s no better way to spend a Saturday than enjoying all things general aviation. That’s the experience AOPA is bringing to members and aviation enthusiasts nationwide with a series of six regional AOPA Fly-Ins and a special AOPA Homecoming in Frederick, Md.
Enjoy a traditional pancake breakfast and town hall discussion with AOPA President Mark Baker to learn more about you association, ask questions and share ideas.
There will be opportunities for members to meet and mingle with other members and AOPA staff, take part in educational and safety seminars, and explore aircraft displays, aviation exhibits, and participate in flying activities and clinics. For those who aren’t yet pilots enjoy a learn-to-fly area and maybe even take a “first flight” with an instructor!
In addition to the Frederick event, six AOPA Fly-Ins are scheduled.
