We had a AOPA Fly-In at Fredrick, MD, May 10th and 11th.. The weather was a changable and challenging (but we are pilots after all). Thanks to extra effort from the amazing staff of AOPA everything kept rolling nicely. They continued to adjust the schedule around it and fun was had by all. There were lots of static displays and STOL take-off and landing

We met with many members and signed up even more (welcome aboard). The D-Day re-enactment with the 7 C-47s and the Liberty Jump Team was especially moving.
