AOPA has decided to suspend holding its annual Aviation Summit in favor of reaching more members “where they fly.” The AOPA Summit in Ft Worth, Texas, Oct. 10- 12, 2013 , will be held as planned and according to AOPA, this year's Summit is on track for thousands of members to attend. In 2014, the AOPA Annual Convention to be held in Palm Springs has been cancelled.
In 2014, AOPA will host a series of enhanced pilot town halls and fly-ins. These Saturday events will give members the chance to share in a discussion with Baker and other AOPA leaders, partake in an educational forum, and enjoy a burger or a hotdog on AOPA.
More details about next year’s pilot town halls and fly-ins, as well as activities around AOPA’s seventy-fifth anniversary year, will be released as they become available.
