How Can We Boost The Ranks? Group Wants YOUR Ideas
One of the biggest threats to the
future of general aviation is the drastic decline of the pilot
population. The number has dropped below 600,000... and the
Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association notes that number continues
In an open letter to membership in the May issue of AOPA
Pilot magazine, AOPA President Phil Boyer turned to members to
ask them how they would address this critical issue.
Noting many of AOPA's most innovative and successful programs
started with an idea from a single member, Boyer appealed for
members to take five minutes to complete a short survey, which asks
for ideas and opinions on how AOPA might address this problem.
"Let him know your thoughts. You may be the one pilot who holds
the key to keeping general aviation from dwindling past the point
of no return," AOPA notes in a posting on the pilot advocacy
The organization plans to compile the results, and Boyer will
report back on what ideas were offered in coming months.
