Hurricane Irma won’t be interfering with AOPA’s planned October fly-in to Peter O. Knight Airport (KTPF) in Tampa, Florida. According to AOPA, the airport officials have reported that the airport didn’t suffer any major damage from the storm and is still looking forward to hosting the two-day event. “We feel that now, one of the best things we can do to continue to support Florida residents is to participate in helping businesses return to normal,” said Chris Eads, AOPA Director of Outreach, “and that’s what continuing to host the fly-in will help do at Peter O. Knight.”
The Tampa fly-in, scheduled for October 27-28, is the final event of AOPA’s 2017 fly-in season. If it’s as successful as the other three, they should see some sizable crowds. The fly-in will include workshops and seminars on topics ranging from water survival to managing your aircraft maintenance, exhibits, events and aircraft displays. For those planning on attending, pre-registration is required for the workshops, though not for the rest of the activities.
