The GA community is something special. We are pilots, aircraft owners, and enthusiasts. We come from all backgrounds, work in all industries, and fly for all reasons. But we have one very important thing in common—we all value the freedom to fly.
And when we connect with one another, great things happen. Together, we generate new ways of thinking about the future of general aviation. We demonstrate our commitment to elected leaders. We collaborate on everything from saving airports to growing the pilot population. And we make general aviation stronger.
This year we can harness that energy and creativity as we Keem 'Em Flying! And I invite you to be part of the excitement.
To make it easy for you to connect with your fellow pilots and join in the discussion of the issues that affect your flying, AOPA is hosting and taking part in events nationwide. (We’re always adding to the schedule, but you can find the most current list of events here. Throughout the year we will get together to share ideas and build momentum for the great things that are happening in general aviation.
I invite you to join with me, your fellow AOPA members, and pilots everywhere as we get together to Keem 'Em Flying! Come to an event in your area, or join the discussion at national and regional events. And bring along someone who’s interested in aviation.
Together we can help GA take off and climb into the flight levels.
