Here’s a challenge your tummy will appreciate: Fly to airports with a restaurant on the field, enjoy a treat, and check in through the AOPA app’s Pilot Passport feature to earn $100 Hamburger Airport Amenity Badges.

The challenge is part of the August Aviation Amenities Challenge.
The three participants with the most $100 Hamburger Airport Amenity badges will win a $50 SiriusXM gift card.
If you are looking for ideas about new places to fly that have restaurants on the field, check out our “Airport and Nearby Restaurant Guide” that covers most states with a listing of restaurants that remained open with socially distanced seating or carry-out options during the coronavirus pandemic. The restaurants were recommended by AOPA members and staff.
So, fly out, chow down, and check in to participate in the August Aviation Amenities Challenge (see the official rules).
