Sun ‘n Fun is as much about the people as the airplanes, and because it’s the unofficial start of the flying season, it’s always a wonderful opportunity to bring people from across the country together. This morning, Karen Gebhart, president of the AOPA Foundation, and I had the chance to get together with some special friends–donors who support the AOPA Foundation. Over breakfast at the AOPA Chalet on the Sun ‘n Fun flight line, we had the chance to thank these supporters in person and bring them up to date on what’s next for the AOPA Foundation. Without people like these, who make an extra effort to engage with general aviation by offering their financial support, we couldn’t accomplish nearly as much as we do. If you aren’t already familiar with the AOPA Foundation, take a look at the Foundation page on our website to learn more about how your contribution can help protect your freedom to fly.
