The events, scheduled for August 27 in Manassas and October 1 in Fort Worth, will feature aircraft sales displays, technology-related seminars, and a large exhibit hall with product displays. AOPA has worked to ensure the events align with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“The AOPA Aviator Showcase events are designed to provide pilots and aircraft owners with the opportunity to see and learn about the aviation industry’s vast array of products, services, aircraft, and equipment,” said Chris Eads, AOPA senior director of outreach and events. “Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with industry leaders in avionics and cockpit technology, flight planning, weather resources, aircraft manufacturing, and more.”
Aircraft owners and potential buyers will find the showcases particularly helpful, with products such as oil and anticorrosives, lights, batteries, propellers, engines, and other aircraft accessories. Local paint shops, avionics shops, and aircraft detailing businesses will be available at each event as well. In addition, pilots can talk to aircraft lenders, insurers, and aircraft manufacturers and dealers.
Advance registration will be required, and AOPA will open registration for each showcase 12 weeks before the event. Tickets cost $20, and food service will be available at each showcase.
