Be a More Informed Pilot
Elevate your pilot experience! AOPA is committed to helping you become a better, safer, more informed pilot. You'll find plenty of focused workshops and short, dynamic seminars - led by some of the greatest experts and voices in aviation.
Haven't been in the left seat for a while? Check out Rusty Pilots. Interested in drones? We'll have a wonderful interactive experience for you.
Don't miss the Pilot Town Hall where you can share your ideas with AOPA President and CEO Mark Baker and find out what's new in GA and at AOPA.
Fly-In Activities & Exhibits
There’s so much to experience at an AOPA Fly-In!
Enjoy a fun-filled Barnstormers Party on Friday night, sponsored by Jeppesen. Check out the Exhibit Hall for all things aviation-related, then stroll through the Aircraft Display to see some of the most amazing aircraft on display, from the latest GA has to offer to rare vintage aircraft.
Don't forget to stop by the AOPA Village, meet AOPA staff, and learn how to make the most of your AOPA membership. Our Trade-A-Plane Aircraft Sellers Corral is a great place to buy or sell a legacy aircraft. We even have a designated fun area for kids!
And, if you really want a front-row seat at the fly-in, consider volunteering for one of our many airside or showside positions.
