Imperial War Museum Duxford AOPA Bonus Day
Saturday September 10th 2011
The day is open to both AOPA members and non members
Following the success of the Duxford AOPA Bonus Day in 2010, a great programme has been put together for the 2011 AOPA Bonus Day.
The day has five flavours:
• “A guide through the flight crew licensing minefield” by Cliff Whittaker, CAA Head of Flight crew Licensing
• "AOPA's views on key issues facing GA" by Martin Robinson, CEO of AOPA UK
• Questions and discussion -- have your say
• Meet AOPA folk
• Enjoy a day at Duxford at discount prices with lunch included
This year, the Imperial War Museum have generously provided the use of the AirSpace Conference Centre for the day. Presentations will be given in the purpose built Marshall auditorium, with refreshments and lunch being served in the adjacent Concorde meeting room.
There will be time to meet old and new friends, time for networking and to visit Corporate member’s displays. And all just a step away from the mezzanine viewing gallery overlooking the magnificent exhibits in the AirSpace hangar.
The morning will consist of the keynote presentation by Cliff Whitaker followed by question time on that topic - which promises to be a lively affair. After a buffet lunch, AOPA (UK) Chief Executive and European IAOPA Vice President Martin Robinson will run through AOPA's position on the key issues affecting GA. There will then be time for a general discussion and an “Ask AOPA” session where AOPA staff and members involved in particular projects will be available to answer your questions. The presentations and discussion (with lunch) will begin with refreshments at 11.00 and run until 15.30.
A new feature for this year will be expert led guided tours of the Museum in the morning and afternoon. Perfect for either yourself or your guests while you are attending the presentations. Additionally Classic Wings will be offering attendees discounted flights in their De Havilland Rapide.
How to book:
AOPA members and non-members alike are welcome. If you are not a member and want to know what AOPA can do for you, come along. You will be pleasantly surprised. If you are a member, bring your aviation friends (family will also enjoy the day at Duxford).
A ticket for the day, including admission to the presentations, a buffet lunch, tea / coffee and discount entry to the Museum will cost £20 per person. In addition, the discounted landing fee for all visiting aircraft will be £7.
If you would rather drive to the venue, there is easy access via the M11 and there is ample parking available.
Full details and booking are to be found on the AOPA web site, covering the Bonus Day and presentations, lunch, tours and museum entry, including booking a landing slot at Duxford.
