After some questionable delays, ANN finally got a look at the annual IRS 990 report that non-profit organizations like AOPA have to file every year.
Despite the fact that AOPA claims that salaries are declining at what they unabashedly call the most powerful voice for general aviation, the ratio of top salaries to the amounts taken in by the association are kinda worrisome. The investigation into the crash of a Lear 25 that killed Latin-American celebrity Jenni Rivera and six others has taken several interesting turns. First, the Los Angeles Times reports the company that owned the plane had been accused of falsifying records about airplanes they had bought and sold in the past. All this... and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
