What would you rather take to the sky than a proven, trusted companion? Soon you will be able to take AOPA's Airport Directory 2005-2006 edition along on every flight, whether it's for a $100 hamburger stop or business trip. The directory, published every two years, will be mailed January 27.
AOPA members in the automatic annual renewal program along with those who requested the directory with their membership renewal should receive their copy mid-February.
New to this issue are toll-free flight service station (FSS) telephone numbers for nearly 5,000 public-use airports. This allows you to call the individual FSS instead of your home-base FSS by default when you dial 800/WX-BRIEF on your cell phone.
Icons appear next to FBO listings to show you at a glance if the business offers AOPA's 5% FBO Rebate Program, has a Meteorlogix weather station, is an AvFuel dealer, and if its repair stations are members of the Aircraft Electronics Association.
The directory also features more than 5,300 public-use and 2,000 private-use airports, airport diagrams, hotels and restaurants, local attractions, and aviation businesses such as fixed-base operators (FBOs), flight schools, and taxi service companies.
Use AOPA's Airport Directory online to supplement the printed version's wealth of information. Print out the latest digital instrument approach charts and kneeboard-formatted airport diagrams and information sheets. The online directory is updated every business day to ensure that you have the latest information at your fingertips.
