Demand for AOPA Airports online grows
Book remains available
Everything AOPA is hearing from pilots—members and nonmembers alike—is that the recently redesigned AOPA Airports online airport directory is increasingly one of their main sources of airport information during preflight planning. With frequently updated information, in most cases including fuel prices and weather information, AOPA Airports is more in-depth and up to date than any airport directory book.
AOPA Airports is free and available to all pilots. It includes information from the FAA, plus comprehensive FBO, restaurant, and hotel information; approach procedures; fuel and weather information; and the ability to save favorites. AOPA members also have the option to download the directory to their iPhones, BlackBerrys, and Windows Mobile smartphones, for convenient mobile browsing.
For those who prefer to have a hard copy of the directory in the cockpit, the next print edition will be available for pre-order near the end of June, and delivery near the end of December. The 2011/2012 AOPA Airports book will include the most up-to-date information available at the time of printing, so those who use the print edition should routinely check for updates online.
Due to the declining interest in the print edition, members who choose to get a copy will be asked to help defray the cost of printing by paying the exclusive, reduced price of $19.95. Nonmembers will have the opportunity to purchase a copy for $39.95. Details on the 2011/2012 AOPA Airports book, including how to order, will be communicated to AOPA members through AOPA ePilot and AOPA Pilot later this month.
AOPA is committed to producing the most up to date, accurate, and complete airport directory possible, no matter which format a pilot chooses. Questions and feedback regarding AOPA Airports may be directed to AOPA member services.
