,

You are invited to participate in an AOPA-hosted aviation community meeting on Tuesday, August 9 in Long Beach, California. During the meeting, we will provide a status update on the AOPA Flight Training Student Retention Initiative and then facilitate small group discussions to generate ideas to help more student pilots complete flight training. Your input will help guide our efforts to create a more positive flight training experience, which will help student pilots achieve their goals while growing the pilot population and strengthening general aviation.

In an effort to get a national perspective on the flight training experience, AOPA recently held aviation community meetings in the New York, Seattle, and Orlando areas. After this meeting in Long Beach, we will be heading to Chicago and Dallas.

We hope you will join us in this industry-wide effort by actively participating in this meeting.
