AOPA offers online course for passengers

Pre-flight flight for passengers

Many of the fundamentals of flying come naturally to you, especially if you've been flying for more than a few years. But passengers may have a different view. If they are new to general aviation, they may be a bit nervous, or even anxious about how those "small planes" work. Help ease their fears a bit by showing them the Pinch Hitter online course from the Air Safety Institute. They’ll learn everything from aerodynamics to navigation and emergency procedures. And it could provide the spark they need to begin their own training.

Summer Weather HOT tips from AOPA

Summer Weather

Summer can be great for flying, whether in search of the elusive $100 hamburger, or to just spend some quality time aloft. On the flip side: The sweltering heat that sometimes accompanies summer weather can throw a nasty wrench in the works by creating severe thunderstorms, high density altitudes, and visibility-reducing haze. Print safety tips, brush up on your weather knowledge, and test your newly acquired skills with ASI’s award-winning courses.

GA airports into four categories

General Aviation Airports: A National Asset documents an 18-month study of the nearly 3,000 general aviation (GA) airports, heliports, and seaplane bases identified in the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS). This indepth analysis highlights for the traveling public the pivotal role GA airports play in our society, economy, and the aviation system. The study also aligns the GA airports into four categories---national, regional, local, and basic---based on their existing activity levels.
