AOPA re-engages with Industry – AOPA Safety Seminar August 16, 2014

I had an interesting interview with aaron.stephenson@aopa.com.au this week, having been a member of AOPA until around 2001, but disappointed with AOPA taking money from CASA for advertising and “safety seminars”, so I left as a member.

Aaron tells me that there have been major changes afoot and these are certainly welcomed.

Problem is AOPA is the natural representative for owners and pilots in GA and private aviation. Compared with AOPA-US, AOPA-AUS has a long way to go with it’s representation.

Aaron tells me that although they haven’t finalised the August programme, which is a “big event”, they have invited Pooshan [PMO – CAsA] to give an address.

AOPA have made the event “open”, so bring you questions – CVD, ADHD, Anxiety anyone.
