Fly more with March Saving Daylight Challenge

Get rewarded for most daily airport check-ins

Editor's note: This article was updated March 11 with additional information.

As the days get longer with the approach of daylight saving time March 14, pilots can put the extra daylight hours to good use by flying to more airports each day and by checking in upon arrival with the AOPA app’s Pilot Passport feature.

The top three participants with the most daily airport check-ins will each win an Instrument Rating Course from Sporty’s Pilot Shop, valued at $249. Sporty’s IFR course includes more than 12 hours of HD video and animations that help explain and reinforce concepts and procedures to prepare pilots for flying in the clouds. Quizzes following each video segment reinforce the training material for better comprehension and retention in advance of the written test.

Just make sure to check in with the AOPA app’s Pilot Passport feature after you land, and don’t forget to add photos of your experience, or airfield tips that other pilots can use on their journeys.

If you don’t have the AOPA app, download it from the Apple App Store or Google Play so that you can take part in the March Saving Daylight Challenge (see the official rules).
