Hello Aviator

AOPA’s Aviator Showcase is back! Join hundreds of pilots and aircraft owners for an exclusive gathering with the industry’s leading experts in avionics and cockpit technology, flight planning and weather resources, and aircraft manufacturing and sales. Looking to upgrade or still searching for the perfect aircraft? Local services such as paint shops, avionics manufacturers, and aircraft detailers will be there to help. You can also talk to financiers, insurers, and dealers about buying the aircraft of your dreams.

Additionally, this fantastic event also includes a guided tour of AOPA's historic headquarters building. We will be offering a shuttle courtesy of Signature Aviation to transport you to and from the tour. By taking this insider's tour, you'll be gaining exclusive insight into the rich history of AOPA and its ongoing mission to promote aviation and defend our right to fly. 

Kick-off the show on Friday, 12-5pm and enjoy our exhibit hall and educational seminars. Then, stay for the Happy Hour that's 5-7pm and interact with our Exhibitors and presenters.

The exhibit hall and educational seminars continue through Saturday until 3pm. Click here to view our seminar schedule. Seminars will be held in tents A and B on Friday and Saturday.

Exhibitors at an AOPA Fly In

What better way to show off your latest product or service than by exhibiting directly to your target audience? The AOPA Aviator Showcase does exactly that. Pilots and aircraft owners will be eager to not only see, but also learn, and buy; they’ll be hungry for the latest information on new aircraft, avionics, flight planning tools, safety resources, and aviation services. Take full advantage of this opportunity to meet your customers face-to-face by exhibiting at our Aviator Showcase! 

Explore our menu of exhibit and sponsorship opportunities in our Event Prospectus.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Is this an AOPA Fly-In?

No, these events cater to those looking to buy or learn more about new products and services available within the general aviation market. They will be focused exclusively on exhibits, displays, and educational content related to aircraft ownership and operations. They will be smaller and more intimate than our traditional fly-ins, allowing for greater interaction and up-close engagement with the products, services, and equipment available to serious aviators.

What programming can I expect?

Aside from some time with on-site Exhibitors in the Exhibit Hall and Aircraft Display, you’ll have the chance to attend seminars focused on aircraft ownership, products, and technology.

What's included with my ticket?

Exhibitors will be offering exclusive show specials and other incentives only available to event guests. And since this is a limited-capacity event, you can expect higher-quality engagement with subject matter experts from the general aviation industry.

I'm coming from out of town, where can I stay? Are there car rentals available? 

AOPA has secured blocks of rooms at the SpringHill Suites, Frederick and the Hilton Garden Inn, Frederick.
