Looking for the week’s general aviation news in a short and entertaining format? So are a lot of other pilots, some of whom may have misplaced theirs.

AOPA’s recent change to the way it provides video content means that some viewers of AOPA Live This Week, the association’s weekly video news show, may have trouble finding their news. The technology change means that viewers who watch the streaming video show on iTunes and AppleTV will need to subscribe to a new channel, which they can do online.

“We appreciate viewers making the change,” said Tom Haines, AOPA senior vice president of media, communications, and outreach, and co-anchor of the show. “The new distribution system allows us to offer a better online experience for all of AOPA’s video content.” The change provides for better video search capabilities on the AOPA website and a host of other improvements.

In addition, the weekly show is now available on the AOPA app, which pilots can download free from the Apple App Store or Google Play. As always, the show is also available for viewing on YouTube and Roku. Wherever you are, whatever your device, you can watch AOPA Live This Week.

AOPA Live This Week is aviation’s most-watched weekly news program, providing the week’s GA news and features in a concise 20-minute format. Anchored by Haines and Melissa Rudinger, AOPA vice president of government affairs, the show is produced by a team of experienced television and video journalists. The show is produced at AOPA’s video studios in Frederick, Maryland, and the team travels the globe to report on GA. Since its inception in 2012, the show has had reports from Africa, Australia, South America, Europe, Cuba, and throughout the United States. A new show is available each Thursday evening on the AOPA website, YouTube, Roku, iTunes Podcasts (to play on or download to your iPhone, iPad, or AppleTV), and the AOPA app. Viewers can subscribe to a free weekly email newsletter that highlights the week’s news segments.
