Brush up on your nontowered radio communications and plot a course to land at as many Class G and E airports as you can during October as part of the latest Pilot Passport challenge.
When you land at Class G or E airports in October, check in via the AOPA app’s Pilot Passport feature to participate in the Haunted Heights Challenge. The three participants with the most check-ins at Class G or E airports during the month will win an Instrument Rating Course from Sporty’s Pilot Shop valued at $249.
For an aerial challenge, spot and photograph corn mazes from the air, and just be sure to land and check in at as many Class G or E airports as possible along your route. You can share your photos via the Pilot Passport feature of the app, and while you can earn points and even badges for doing so, it won’t increase your chances of winning the October challenge.
To participate, make sure you are landing at an airport that is in Class G or E airspace, not at a Class D airport that changes to Class E when the tower is closed. Learn more from the official rules.
