AOPA, ForeFlight reward pilots for flying

Each month beginning in April, AOPA and ForeFlight will highlight a different region of the country and feature fun places to visit. During April, we feature the South in partnership with the following participating locations:

Pilots who check in at these locations during the month of April will be able to pick up free, cool ForeFlight gear and also be entered for a chance to win a monthly and grand prize. (Check out ForeFlight’s official rules.)

“Our number one goal with this program is to get folks out flying!” said Stephen Newman, ForeFlight’s executive vice president of global sales and marketing. “The flying season has already started across the south, and the ForeFlight Fly-Out will provide a fun, educational, socially distanced opportunity for people to fly and help support local economies and small airports/FBOs.”

In addition to partnering on the ForeFlight Fly-Outs, AOPA will continue to offer monthly prizes for checking into airports using the AOPA app’s Pilot Passport feature. AOPA’s April “See Green” Pilot Passport challenge encourages pilots to check in at airports with grass strips. The three participants with the most grass strip airport check-ins in April will be awarded a PJ2 Com radio from Sporty’s Pilot Shop. Check out the official rules here.

AOPA will offer a different challenge each month, giving active pilots even more chances to win.

“AOPA is excited to partner with ForeFlight to reward pilots who support their local communities,” said Jiri Marousek, AOPA senior vice president of marketing. “Our shared mission is to encourage more pilots to fly more often and to more places. We’re happy to team with ForeFlight to encourage pilots to visit some outstanding airports and show support for the aviation community, and the local communities in the surrounding areas.”
