Frederick, MD - The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) today announced
the dates and locations of its first-ever regional fly-ins to be held nationwide throughout
2014. The Association will host six fly-ins as well as an “AOPA Homecoming” in
Frederick, Md., giving AOPA members throughout the United States a chance to interact and
share ideas with AOPA President Mark Baker, mingle with one another over breakfast and lunch,
and take part in safety briefings, aviation clinics and flying activities.
Each AOPA Fly-In will be held on a Saturday, allowing pilots and their families and
friends to attend as part of a weekend outing. The AOPA Fly-In schedule is:
San Marcos Municipal Airport, Texas (HYI) - April 26, 2014
Indianapolis Regional Airport, Indiana (MQJ) - May 31, 2014
Plymouth Airport, Massachusetts (PYM) - July 12, 2014
Spokane Felts Field, Washington (SFF) - August 16, 2014
Chino Airport, California (CNO) - September 20, 2014
Malcolm McKinnon Airport, Georgia (SSI) - November 8, 2014
In addition to the regional fly-ins, AOPA on Oct. 4, 2014 will host an “AOPA Homecoming”
fly-in at its Frederick, MD, headquarters (FDK) as the association celebrates its 75th anniversary.
This event marks the return of the popular AOPA headquarters fly-ins.
“These Fly-Ins were inspired by our members. They wanted a way to connect with one another and
AOPA, and I’m excited that we’re able to bring this experience to so many pilots around
the country,” Baker said. “This is going to be a great way for our members to tell us what
they care about most when it comes to aviation and to share the aviation experience with family and
friends in a fun, relaxed setting. Plus, it’s a great excuse to get out and do some flying that
supports airports and aviation businesses close to home.”
The fly-ins will take the place of AOPA’s annual Aviation Summit.
Each AOPA Fly-In and the “Homecoming” will feature a pancake breakfast and
pilot town hall hosted by Baker, free lunch for members, exhibits and static aircraft
displays, flying activities and safety clinics, a “Learn to Fly” area, and a
chance to visit with AOPA staff and program specialists.
Aviation product exhibitors -- a major feature at AOPA summits - will also be welcome
at the regional fly-ins, giving pilots a chance to see, test, and buy new products and
AOPA members who want to take part in the fly-ins, as well as exhibitors, should watch
for more information soon at www.aopa.org/fly-in.
