AOPA Rusty Pilots Seminar presented by AOPA at the Buckeye Air Fair

Saturday, February 18th  
8:00 AM - 11:30 AM MST 
Buckeye, AZ  

Instructed by Jamie Beckett - AOPA Foundation.  
Life may have gotten in the way, but the dream of flight can be yours again. Returning to the skies is not as difficult as most rusty pilots think. We are inviting you back in the cockpit and will help you get there. Come and participate in this Rusty Pilots program with fellow lapsed pilots. We will help you understand what’s changed in aviation since you last took the controls and brush up on your aviation knowledge. AOPA developed the Rusty Pilots program in partnership with local flight training providers in order to create the best environment for getting you back in the air and a part of the general aviation community.  

  • It is easier than most people think – no FAA check ride or test 

  • Might not even need a medical 

  • Plus, you’ll get two to three hours of ground instruction toward your flight review!  

Admission to the fair is FREE.  However, there is an automobile parking fee of $15 for the day.  Advanced parking is available for purchase at a reduced rate of $10 through Buckeye Air Fair. For parking information, click here
