IAOPA 28th World Assembly

Dear Affiliates, Friends, and General Aviation Supporters:

With the Spring Flying Season upon us I know how difficult it is to think of anything other than getting the airplane out of the hangar and enjoying the sights from the left seat of an aircraft. But time is running out to secure your seat at the IAOPA 28th World Assembly being hosted by AOPA US at the Westin Chicago River North, July 21-24, 2016. Located in the heart of downtown Chicago’s famous Loop and overlooking the Chicago River, the Westin Chicago River North enjoys one of the city’s most coveted locations.

In this year’s program we will be discussing subjects that are critical to every affiliate’s future as we go in-depth on rebranding, AOPA Global initiative, and topics including medical reform, integration of Unmanned Aerial Systems and much more. The Assembly is being kicked off with an up close and personal roundtable discussion with three of the most influential people in aviation worldwide. Dr. Fang Lui, ICAO Secretary General, Mr. Patrick Ky, Executive Director EASA, and the Honorable Michael Huerta, Administrator FAA will all be sharing their visions of General Aviation. This is truly one World Assembly that cannot be missed.

A separate follow-on trip to Oshkosh to attend AirVenture is being organized for those who are interested, but space for both the World Assembly and the AirVenture visit are limited and time is running out. Each affiliate should be sure to let the secretary general and IAOPA HQ know who will be representing you at the assembly. I fully expect record attendance and I urge you register now to ensure your seat at the table.

The cut-off date to guarantee your hotel room at the discounted price is rapidly approaching so don’t delay.

I look forward to seeing all of you in Chicago this July.
