AOPA Washington Fly-In Draws Biggest Crowd Yet

http://www.avweb.com/avwebflash/news/AOPA-Washington-Fly-In-Draws-Biggest-Crowd-Yet-226841-1.html

AOPA has been organizing its regional fly-ins for a few years now, and its latest event, held at the Bremerton National Airport near Seattle, Washington, drew more than 4,000 people and nearly 700 aircraft. The event offered on-airport camping, VIP tours of an aircraft carrier and the Boeing plant in nearby Everett, a Friday night barbecue with a live band, and educational talks and seminars all day Saturday. It was the most popular AOPA fly-in ever, by a wide margin, according to AOPA outreach director Chris Eads. AOPA president Mark Baker said local pilots, volunteers, and support from the Civil Air Patrol, EAA, and the Washington Pilots Association made it possible “to bring together thousands of people in the Pacific Northwest who share a common interest in aviation.”

AOPA will host two more fly-ins this year. On September 16-17, the show will be in Battle Creek, Michigan, and on September 30 - October 1, in Prescott, Arizona. The events are free and open to everyone, with activities scheduled Friday night through Sunday. AOPA will publish important arrival and departure procedures and a NOTAM three weeks prior to each event. All shows include a Q&A session with Baker, a rusty pilots seminar, on-site camping, static displays, and more.

The President of Washington Pilot Association puts out a newsletter called "Enroute" that updates all the members of how things are going. Jim has two newsletter describing the details of the event. Hopefully others will take something from these newsletter for their upcoming event.
