AOPA staff are making final preparations for Saturday's Fly-in and Open House at AOPA headquarters in Frederick, Maryland. The weather forecast is mostly sunny and warm: a perfect day to fly in or drive in and see the sights.
Visitors can attend 17 aviation seminars, most of which are directly related to safety of flight. More than 100 exhibitors will be on hand, offering everything from aviation insurance to the latest gadgets for the cockpit. On the ramp in front of AOPA headquarters will be more than three dozen aircraft on static display.
Whether you can make it for the Fly-in or not, you can watch as FDK becomes Maryland's busiest airport for a day. Flight Explorer is providing a real-time display free of charge on AOPA Online. There's also a Web cam showing activity on the ramp in front of AOPA.
Visitors will be able to sample a wide variety of foods during this year's Fly-in. In addition to the usual fare, crab cake sandwiches, shrimp baskets, and other more exotic foods will be available. Breakfast will also be available for those who decide to come early.
