Connecticut will be welcoming general aviation pilots and AOPA members with open arms next week. Gov. M. Jodi Rell has declared Oct. 1 though 6 General Aviation Week in the state in honor of AOPA Expo. Host city Hartford is rolling out the red carpet too, with Mayor Eddie Perez and AOPA President Phil Boyer kicking off the event with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Oct. 4 outside the exhibit hall at the Connecticut Convention Center. "Connecticut is a state rich in aviation history, and that's one of the reasons we picked this East Coast location," said Boyer. "We're excited to see all of our members at what promises to be an exciting, record-breaking Expo."
