Start Planning For The 14th Annual AOPA Fly-In And Open
June 5 may sound a long way off, but
it's only a few Saturdays away. So it's already a good time to
begin planning your trip to the 14th annual AOPA Fly-In and Open
House at Frederick Municipal Airport (FDK) in Frederick (MD).
Arrival procedures are now available online. VFR pilots should
especially be aware of the special transponder code for arriving
traffic, and pilots arriving from the west and south need to pay
attention to route instructions intended to keep them well clear of
both P-40 (Camp David) and the Baltimore-Washington ADIZ.
Once you're safely parked, you'll find a wide variety of things
to do. Tour AOPA's headquarters and talk to staff members
one-on-one. Attend one of the dozen seminars on everything from
safety to ownership to legal issues to hangar flying. Attend a
Q&A session with AOPA President Phil Boyer. Visit the big top
tent behind the headquarters building and browse through 100 vendor
displays. Or wander among the nearly three dozen aircraft in the
static display area at AOPA's ramp.
The AOPA Fly-In and Open House is free and open to all pilots
and anyone interested in general aviation. Local vendors will have
a variety of foods and drinks for sale.
"We're a membership organization," said Boyer. "We look forward
to Fly-In every year, because it gives us a great opportunity to
meet and greet the people who are why we're here."
