Be rewarded in January for most visits to individual airports

A New Year’s resolution to broaden your horizons with flights to different airports that you haven’t yet visited may be rewarding in more ways than one.

Searching out airports away from your home base may challenge you to do some additional homework for familiarity ahead of time or lead to skill-building advice from an instructor. The rewards could be breathtaking scenery, a newfound appreciation for local conditions, and additions to your flying toolbelt.

Use the AOPA App's Pilot Passport feature in January while you hunt down distinctive airports, and the top three participants with the most check-ins—at the most individual airports—will be rewarded with a $100 gift card from Aircraft Spruce and Specialty Co.

Peruse the particulars of your destination ahead of time with iFlightPlanner for AOPA to get a look at the big picture. Don’t forget to use AOPA Weather powered by SiriusXM Aviation for national and airport-specific data in a mobile-friendly format.

If you don’t have the AOPA app, download it from the Apple App Store or Google Play so that you can take part in the January Runway Resolutions Challenge (see the official rules).
