AOPA reminds pilots to fly safe during Memorial Day weekend

U.S. flags

As you prepare to celebrate Memorial Day and honor the men and women who have and are serving this nation, AOPA encourages you to join in the National Moment of Remembrance by observing one minute of silence at 3 p.m. local time on Monday, May 29.

And be vigilant when flying this weekend - airshows, fly-ins, and other events are scheduled all across the country, so it is imperative to check for temporary flight restrictions (TFRs) along your route of flight.

Use AOPA's flight planning page to make sure you thoroughly planned your flight.

The four-step guide takes you through obtaining all the pertinent weather information for your flight, looking up airport information and diagrams, planning your flight with AOPA's Real-Time Flight Planner, and checking notams.

AOPA wishes you a safe and happy holiday and thanks all service men and women for protecting our freedoms.
