Time Out From Sun 'N Fun For Some Serious Discussion
Something on your mind, bunkie? Do
you have something to say that other pilots need to hear? Then
Lakeland (FL) is the place you want to be after you mail in your
tax returns on April 15th. That's where AOPA is holding one of its
Pilot Town Meetings.
Since 1992, AOPA President Phil Boyer has held AOPA Pilot Town
Meetings across America, reviewing national developments in General
Aviation and engaging pilots on local GA issues. In more than 260
such meetings, Boyer has set the pace for direct communication with
the nation's pilots.
AOPA's Pilot Town Meetings offer pilots and aircraft owners a
lively forum in which to discuss matters that are important to
them, exploring issues and concerns with AOPA's president and with
Boyer regards the Pilot Town Meeting
as a learning vehicle for himself, too. Indeed, his primary purpose
in instituting them 10 years ago was to become more familiar with
the concerns of pilots and owners through a direct, personal
exchange of views. He credits this continual feedback (in addition
to continual member research) with helping guide AOPA in constantly
improving its service to members. And that, in turn, has sparked
the steady rise in AOPA membership to its record of more than
Boyer's multimedia presentations are fast-paced and high-tech,
informative and entertaining. And using new, interactive technology
at each meeting, about 50 randomly selected pilots participate in a
real-time electronic poll on a variety of issues. The audience sees
the results instantly!
AOPA's Regional Representatives participate in Pilot Town
Meetings in their areas, and useful printed materials from AOPA and
the AOPA Air Safety Foundation are always available on-site.
AOPA Pilot Town Meetings begin at 7:30 p.m. and are open to all
pilots at no cost.
