You asked for more from your AOPA Fly-In. We listened. The 2017 fly-ins are going to be our best yet, with expanded programming and lots of new opportunities for you to connect with fellow aviators, deepen your skills, and grow your aviation experience!
Register for Friday Workshops led by world-renowned presenters (tuition fees apply) for in-depth skill development, or join us later for a happy hour in the Exhibit Hall when it opens at 4:00 p.m. The fun continues at 6:00 p.m. with music, food, and fun at our ever-popular Barnstormers Party, presented by Jeppesen (always a sell-out, register early!). Saturday activities include free seminars all day, dozens of exhibits and aircraft on display, great meals, and a Pilot Town Hall with AOPA President and CEO Mark Baker. Visit the AOPA Village to learn how AOPA can help you become a better pilot, own an aircraft, or plan your next flight. New activities at this year’s fly-ins include a Kids Zone and the Aircraft Sellers Corral.
Plan to camp with your aircraft and consider a fly-out with your new friends! We’re hard at work developing an expanded camping experience, Saturday afternoon fly-outs, and more features to enhance your AOPA Fly-In experience, so stay tuned for announcements and exciting news for the best year of fly-ins yet!
AOPA Fly-Ins are as much about having fun and making connections as they are about learning and improving your piloting skills. AOPA Fly-Ins have lots of opportunities for you to connect with new friends, expand your knowledge and experience as a pilot, discover new products, make a purchase for your aircraft, and be part of the aviation community.
Returning to the skies is not as difficult as you may think. The Rusty Pilots three-hour seminar gives you all the information you need to get current again, including credit toward the ground training required for your Flight Review. Third Class Medical reform is now a reality with the FAA’s new BasicMed program, so this is the perfect time to begin your return to the skies! Free to AOPA members, or join AOPA to waive the non-member registration fee of $69 and get all the benefits of an AOPA membership for one year. The AOPA Fly-In is the perfect opportunity to pick up where you left off. Choose between two sessions: Friday night 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. or Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
When you're a pilot, travel is just as much about the journey as the destination. We’ll provide you with everything you need to know about traveling to and staying at the AOPA Fly-In of your choosing.
Maybe one of our destinations is in a location you've had on your bucket list to check out. Then now's the time to do it! We’ll provide you with a list of things to do, places to eat, family fun, where to rent a car, and we'll organize excursions to specific spots in the area. Every fly-in location is rich with exciting opportunities to explore beyond the airfield. Check out each location for activities, excursions, and tours.
