Chicagoland Pilots Advocacy Meeting
October 23, 2019 @ 05:30 - 19:00
All Chicagoland Flying Clubs, Pilot Associations, Flight Schools, Airport Support Network Members
You are invited to represent your organization at a Town Hall hosted by the Chicago Executive Pilot Association (CEPA) and presented by Kyle Lewis (AOPA Government Affairs) and Andy Miller (AOPA You Can Fly). This Town Hall is designed to inform local pilot groups, flying clubs, airport associations, and AOPA Airport Support Network Volunteers on the current national and local issues AOPA is working on a day to day basis. Airport advocacy, regional legislative agendas, and the growth of the pilot population will be discussed, and there will be an opportunity for Q&A.
Directly after the town hall, “Difficult Decisions” the latest AOPA Air Safety Institute seminar, will be presented by Andy. We encourage you to stay and hear the valuable safety message. The Safety Seminar is WINGS credit eligible. Please encourage the other pilots in your organization to attend too!
We will start the meeting at 5:30. You can fly over to KPWK. Signature Flight Support has generously offered to waive ramp fees for this fly-in event; the hotel venue is 0.8sm walk but Signature will shuttle you over if you’d rather.
If you can’t make this meeting, it would be great if you could send someone else to represent your organization. Please share this with any other aviation-related organizations.
The second meeting will be an Air Safety Institute meeting. Chicago Executive Pilot Association is sponsoring this event. There will be WINGS credit for attendance.
