Many pilots have come to rely on the information provided by AOPA Airports for their flight planning. Whether it’s finding a rental car, checking fuel prices, reviewing approach procedures or selecting an FBO, the information is as close as your computer. The online version of AOPA Airports is continually updated, making the information that much more reliable and timely.

Recently redesigned, AOPA Airports is a tremendous member benefit, and free online access will continue for AOPA members. What’s new is that AOPA members have the option to download AOPA Airports to their iPhones, BlackBerrys, and Windows Mobile smartphones. If you’re an electronic, plugged in, hooked-up pilot, you’ll be set.However, some pilots still prefer to have a printed copy of the directory in the cockpit or to browse through at home. For those members, AOPA will print a limited number of AOPA Airports in book format. Orders are being taken now for AOPA Airports, the book, and may be placed online. Order now to have a copy shipped in late December 2010. The cost of the printed directory is $19.95 for AOPA members and $39.95 for nonmembers. This printed version will have the most up-to-date information available at the time of printing, and you will still have the option of checking for updates online.

AOPA is committed to producing the most up-to-date, accurate, and complete airport directory possible, no matter which format a pilot chooses. Limited copies of AOPA Airports will be printed so make sure you reserve a copy today.


ANSWERS FOR PILOTS

Fly-out to Mexico after AOPA Summit

Birds are pretty smart when it comes to flying where the weather is nice. As they head south this fall, you may want to follow them and enjoy the lingering warmth of Mexico and the Baja Peninsula. If you are attending AOPA Aviation Summit, November 11 through 13 in Long Beach, California, consider joining the Fly-out to Baja and beyond, offered through Caribbean Sky Tours. The trip departs Long Beach on Sunday, November 14, and returns to Calexico, California, on Friday, November 19. Aircraft will stop in Loreto, Cabo San Lucas, and Alamos. Information about the fly-out is online.

There’s a lot involved in planning a trip across the border, but this one will be easier than most: Caribbean Sky Tours will process permits, flight plans, and eAPIS manifests; arrange for lodging, meals, and tours as outlined in the itinerary; and assist participants throughout the entire trip. Although much of the work will be done for you as part of the fly-out group, you’ll still need to take care of some of the preparations, such as ensuring that you have 12-inch registration marks on your aircraft and liability insurance for flight into Mexico. Read the details in this month’s Answers for Pilots.

AOPA will host two webinars on flying to Mexico on Tuesday, October 12. Register for the webinar online and plan to attend either the 3 p.m. or 9 p.m. (Eastern time) session. Questions? Give AOPA’s Pilot Information Center a call Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern time, at 800-USA-AOPA (872-2672).
