AOPA Holds Its Final Summit
Shortly before this year’s AOPA Summit in Fort Worth, Texas, the new president of the organization, Mark Baker, said this will be the last event of its kind. In its place, he says, AOPA will host a number of regional fly-ins next year, focused on offering educational opportunities and bringing new members into the fold while promoting better interaction between the organization and its members. The announcement met a mixed reaction--vendors prefer one big show where they can meet a lot of customers, and some pilots say the concentrated venue is easier to navigate than big air shows.
