Explore new horizons at AOPA Expo 2008
The San Jose McEnery Convention Center will showcase more than 570 exhibits, including cutting-edge avionics, flight gear, equipment, and pilot services, during AOPA Expo 2008 from Nov. 6 through 8.
During Expo, learn about safety, proficiency, ownership, medical issues, and flying destinations during the 60-plus hours of seminars that will be offered throughout the three days. Then, explore more than 60 aircraft that will be on display, including the newest models from major aircraft manufacturers.
Attendees may register on-site for seminars, exhibit passes, and social events. Three of this year’s social events will be at the convention center: the opening luncheon, welcome reception, and closing banquet. The Friday Night Party will be at The Tech Museum of Innovation and promises to be a fun-packed evening. In addition to dinner, drinks, music, and hands-on technology/science exhibits, there will be free tickets available (on a first-come, first-served basis) to see the IMAX aviation film The Magic of Flight.
AOPA will also offer free “Let’s Go Flying” seminars. Attendees who are 18 years and older may qualify for a $99 rebate on their introductory flight.
“If you’re learning to fly, or thinking about learning to fly, Expo is the place to be,” said AOPA President Phil Boyer. “Bring a friend who might be interested in flying, too. Expo is a great chance to share your passion.”
DTC Duat, the AOPA Expo Diamond Sponsor, is again sponsoring the Internet Café, which will be located in the exhibit hall. A shuttle service, courtesy of Platinum Sponsor Cessna, will transport attendees to and from the convention center and the aircraft display at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport.
