Pilots flying in to AOPA Expo have three great airports with upgraded facilities to choose from. Vandenberg, Tampa International, and Peter O. Knight airports are all serving as hosts as AOPA makes its Tampa, Florida, debut from November 3 through 5.
Make sure you read the arrival procedures before you fly. Once at Expo, you can see new aircraft packed with the latest avionics and be eligible to win products that can help your flying. By attending one of the "10 Strategies For Controlling Aircraft Insurance Costs" seminars, you can enter to win a handheld radio from Sporty's Pilot Shop. And visit the AOPA Member Products aisle to enter drawings to win a $500 fuel card or a Garmin 96 GPS receiver from MBNA. Save money by registering for Expo by October 17.
Also, AOPA has been asked by the Hillsborough County Airport Authority to help find volunteers to assist fixed-based operators and airport staff during Expo. You may be asked to park or marshal aircraft, hand out general information, or staff hospitality areas. It's an exciting opportunity to help general aviation, meet your fellow AOPA members, and be a part of Expo! Don't wait until the last minute. Sign up using the interactive form on AOPA Online. Volunteers receive a free one-day pass to Expo.
