Beaches rule during December Pilot Passport challengebeaches rule during december pilot passport challenge

Grand prize winner receives Island Guides, stainless water bottle, Bluetooth stereo headset

If shorter days, colder temperatures, and gray skies have you down in December, consider the Beach Therapy Challenge to change your attitude.

Use the AOPA app's Pilot Passport feature while you log some time at the beach to earn island badges for your visits during December and to become eligible for the grand prize.

Make sure to use the AOPA app’s Pilot Passport feature during the month of December to check in at island airports and don’t forget to share your experiences with other pilots via social media.

While you’re at it, try the recently updated AOPA Airports and Destinations Directory that is integrated into the AOPA app and get the airport information you’ll need—including runway headings and elevation, services, and local amenities.

Before you take off, don’t forget to check AOPA Weather powered by SiriusXM Aviation, which provides national and airport-specific data in a mobile-friendly format via the AOPA app (or via a desktop computer). AOPA members can also take a look at the big picture, view hi-res charts, and file flight plans with iFlightPlanner for AOPA.

The participant with the most island badges will win a 2021 Complete Island Guide Print Package and a watercolor stainless bottle from the AOPA Pilot Gear store, plus a noise canceling Bluetooth stereo headset provided by Jeppesen. (For complete details, see the official rules.)

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 December Pilot Passport challenge.
