What are your 2018 aviation resolutions?

Posted by John Munn on Jan 9, 2018 4:10 pm

Happy New Year, aviators! What are some of your top New Year's resolutions for 2018? I personally want to earn my tailwheel endorsement. 

We asked some of our own AOPA staff pilots what their resolutions were. Check them out and share yours in the discussion.

Katie Pribyl's aviation reslolution is to paint and polish her Cessna 180 named "Buck" in its original scheme. You may rememer seeing Katie's story featured in AOPA Pilot Magazine

Jamie Beckett, our You Can Fly Ambassador in Florida, said his resolution is to fly something different than a Cessna. Jamie wants to fly a Stearman!

Setting new goals for yourself, whether big or small, are a great way to enhance your experience as a pilot.

I plan on attending the AOPA Missoula Fly In, but find little to outdated information on the fly in tab. What's up and when can we expect an updated page? Looking forward to the Missoula Fly In!! 

Thanks for any info you can pass along..................Tom

Hi Tom, check back on the Fly-In Hub tab for updated content. We are continuing to add content related to 2018 Fly-Ins on the Hangar as well as our website. We look forward to seeing you at a fly-in this year! 

Thanks for posting.

Hi John;

Thanks for the reply. I have my hotel reservations. Do I need to contact anyone in regard to aircraft tie down or any type of registration?
I'll be flying in to Missoula Thursday afternoon and staying until Sunday.

Thanks...........Tom

Tom...glad you are coming to Missoula!! We plan to have our new website with all the 2018 event data and details--as well as RSVP options to tell us you're coming--up and running by early February. That will be time and place to let us know your plans to attend. It's always helpful to have a read on who's coming and what aircraft to expect. We will be publishing special arrival and departure procedures and a NOTAM about 6-weeks prior to the event, so also look for that. That will cover not only the flight procedures to get in, but also what to expect on arrival--aircraft parking, etc. 

Hope this helps!!

Chris
