It was seventy years ago at Wings Field in Pennsylvania that an inspired group of aviators formed an organization to protect and promote general aviation. I think they would be proud of those who have shared their dream and built the AOPA of today.
We are pausing this morning to celebrate what we are referring to simply as AOPA SevenZero.
To take us back a few decades, the display featured here was awaiting us outside the doors of our headquarters at the Frederick Airport in Maryland.
Happy 70th Anniversary!
