AOPA is excited to announce the appointment of the 2013-2014 AOPA AV8RS Teen Advisory Council (AATAC) members who will begin their year-long tenure in October. We received many great nominations so the selection process was a tough one. It’s important to note that all nominees exemplify the dedication and passion that characterize our teen AV8RS community – and future leaders of the aviation industry. We appreciate the time, thought and effort they put into submitting their applications and hope they will apply again next year!
