2013 Convention ReCap

This year's 2013 Fly-In Convention in Scottsdale was perhaps our best one yet! There was record attendance with 320 registrants, 37 vendors, 65 aircraft, and everyone arriving and departing safely.

The Desert Ridge Marriott was a wonderful location in the Sonoran Desert with the McDowell and other mountain ranges rising from the desert floor. The weather was beautiful with most days in the high 70’s and low 80’s and not a drop of humidity!

The speakers, presentations and resources were again top notch this year. A number of them out are provided below, along with the preliminary details for next year's convention. We'll see you there!

2014 MMOPA Fly-in Convention

October 15-18 - Bonita Springs, FL

Hyatt Regency Coconut Point in Bonita Springs FL, just south of Ft. Myers and north of Naples

Host airport is Page Field at Fort Myers, KFMY

Mark your calendars now. Registration will begin next August.

And since you are going to be in Florida you can stick around and attend NBAA 2014 in Orlando the following week, Oct. 21 - 23. Halloween is two weeks after our convention in 2014...
