During his time as president of AOPA, Phil Boyer has talked to tens of thousands of pilots at Pilot Town Meetings and speeches, one-on-one, and via e-mail. But he's never hosted an old-fashioned hangar session at AOPA's annual Fly-In and Open House—until now.
"I've always loved the opportunity to talk one-on-one with members as they wander about our headquarters during the Fly-In and Open House," said Boyer. "This year, I know that many of the pilots visiting the Fly-In are directly impacted by the Washington ADIZ. This will be an opportunity to talk frankly about how it is affecting all of you and what is likely to happen in the future."
The thirteenth annual AOPA Fly-In and Open House takes place this coming Saturday, June 7, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Boyer's hangar session will take place in the Speakers' Tent at 11:30 a.m.
Boyer's seminar is one of more than a dozen being offered, on topics ranging from "Single-Pilot IFR" to the aviation humor of Rod Machado.
The AOPA Centennial of Flight Sweepstakes grand prize, a beautifully restored 1940 Waco UPF-7 biplane, will headline the static display of some two dozen aircraft. And 100 vendors will be on hand to showcase some of the latest gadgets and gizmos available to pilots.
Pilots planning to fly in should be aware that due to airport construction, the amount of space available for aircraft parking is reduced compared to last year.
