After two successful years of one-day AOPA Regional Fly-ins, the organization has decided to expand them. There will still be four fly-ins, beginning April 28-29 in Camarillo, CA, but this year each event will be a two-day affair.
AOPA plans to add more activities, workshops, and learning opportunities for attendees. Workshops will be held on a wide range of topics including mountain flying, owner-performed maintenance, and overwater flying. The focus of the programming is to make flying safer, affordable, more fun, and more accessible to everyone with an interest in the aviation community.
AOPA says that the fly-ins have been popular since their inception—in three years more than 40,000 attendees and 6,000 aircraft have shown up for the events and they have just continued to grow. Presumably, the idea is to give the people even more of what they want.
After the April event in California held at KCMA, Norman, OK (KOUN) will host the next fly-in September 8-9 followed by Groton, CT (KGON – October 6-7), and Tampa, FL (KTPF – October 27-28).
