Even if visitors chose to drive in to the Fly-In, there is plenty of convenient parking and shuttle buses to bring folks right to the action.

AOPA Aviation Services staff spent much of Friday shifting aircraft around the AOPA ramp at Frederick Municipal Airport, in anticipation of the thousands of visitors who'll come to the thirteenth annual AOPA Fly-In and Open House. The AOPA Centennial of Flight Sweepstakes grand prize, a restored 1940 Waco UPF-7 biplane, will be the star of the static display, which will include some two dozen other aircraft.

"We're tremendously excited about this year's Fly-In and the chance to spend time with our members one-on-one," said AOPA President Phil Boyer. Boyer will host his first-ever Fly-In seminar, which will take a critical look at airspace issues in and around Washington, D.C.

You don't have to fly in to enjoy the Fly-In. AOPA has hundreds of parking spaces available for anyone who drives, free shuttle buses, and over 100 vendors under cover, just waiting to show off the latest aviation has to offer.

For those who do fly in, the FAA will operate a temporary tower. And pilots need to be aware that the FAA has established a 10-nm temporary flight restriction centered on P-40, the Camp David prohibited area. Be sure to check notams.
