Some of the smartest people we know are just a click away from you - in the AOPA Online aviation-only forums.
Dr. Bruce Chien, for example — a senior AME (aviation medical examiner) and ATP — is frequently available for a "second opinion" in the Medical Matters forum. Said one forum member, "Doc Bruce is the man who can, and has, helped a number of us get our medicals, in some cases for what seems like pretty serious problems. He does it for free, and his advice pays off."
You'll also find advice from experts in air traffic control, aircraft maintenance and repair, engines, buying aircraft — just about anything related to flying general aviation.
And it's not just the "experts." Your fellow pilots have a lot to offer. All you have to do is ask. And pretty soon, you'll discover that you have a lot to say as well.
You can check out all of the knowledge, wisdom, camaraderie, and humor, simply by clicking on the "Aviation Forums" button on the left side of the screen on AOPA.org.
