The Summit Experience

AOPA Aviation Summit – Aviation Meets Here

The AOPA Aviation Summit is a three day event, full of aviation-themed action for all ages and levels of aviation enthusiasm. No matter if you’re a student pilot, have had your pilot certificate for decades, or still have your feet firmly planted on the ground but have always kept an eye high in the sky, there is plenty to see and do – you can’t afford to miss it!

From Airportfest to educational forums and a 500-booth exhibit hall, AOPA Summit brings pilots everything that is relevant to their flying. AOPA Summit attracts industry leaders and policy makers and hosts discussions on critical issues that impact the General Aviation industry.

Not a pilot? For those interested in aviation, there is plenty to do during AOPA Summit. You can take an introductory flight, fly in a flight simulator, attend forums on how to get started with learning to fly and take in a variety of fun activities that will fuel your interest in aviation.

From touchdown to take off, AOPA will entertain and engage you in the general aviation world. AOPA Summit is a full immersion in everything aviation.

Who Should Attend Summit?

…Everyone! Each year, AOPA looks forward to the three days we get to host our members, pilots, and aviation enthusiasts. It’s a special time where we can celebrate the successes and innovations of the current year, and also gain momentum for all of the new general aviation initiatives in the coming year.

At the AOPA Aviation Summit, there is something for everyone. Whether you‘re a loyal member to AOPA, or looking to join, we welcome everyone who has a passion for flying. There are educational sessions that cater to all levels of pilots and an exhibit hall that has products and services for everyone.

Airportfest, AOPA’s static aircraft display (and much more!), is a destination for the whole family. Anyone who loves observing aircraft will find entertainment and enjoyment with a day out at the air field. Many of the top aircraft manufacturers will be at Airportfest, ready to show you the latest models. But it’s not all aircraft out on the field; there are a wide range of activities for the kids – no matter the age!

Whether you’re a student, an experienced pilot, or just interested in general aviation, you belong at the AOPA Aviation Summit.

Who Should Exhibit at Summit?

AOPA Aviation Summit attracts aircraft owners, pilots (more than half are instrument rated), student pilots and aviation enthusiasts. The number one reason pilots say they attend AOPA’s annual convention is to see all the latest aviation products and services.
