Dennis Wolter has been involved in aviation most of his life. As an Industrial Design student at the University of Cincinnati in the late sixties, he began to seriously study the idea of interior improvements to general aviation aircraft. Dennis founded Air Mod in 1973, a company that has become known throughout the country as a premier renovation facility, offering the highest level of quality workmanship, expertise and design innovation highlights.

“EVERYTHING you ever wanted to know about aviation insurance … in 30 minutes”

Bill Snead is a 30+ year aviation insurance professional, former VP of Falcon Insurance Agency Great Lakes (Columbus, Ohio) and President of the AOPA Insurance Agency, and now the Signature Accounts Manager for Aviation Insurance Resources.  Flying clubs are my specialty, and I may well be able to improve upon your current insurance position.

“Flying Club Insurance – It’s all about the members”

Getting the proper insurance for your club is about more than price alone.  It is also about the protections found in the policy, and there are significant differences from one contract to another and from one insurance company to another.  Fortunately clubs have many more options today than in the past, We explain how to make sure the club has the right policy with the right coverage at the right price.

iPads in the Cockpit

“iPads in the cockpit” will provide an introduction of the various applications of iPads in the cockpit from flight planning to VFR and IFR flights to logistical arrangements at your destination.  iPads have made flying more fun, easier, and safer…when used appropriately …and when not, beware!

Ed Loxterkamp has a glider pilot license, Private Pilot License (SEL), Commercial & Instrument ratings. He is an Air Force veteran and has flown and volunteered at every AOPA fly-in during the 2015 season and has flown to and volunteered at most of the other AOPA fly-ins since Mark Baker started them in 2014.  He crossed the Rocky Mountains four times after taking a mountain flying course and the proper use of oxygen in the cockpit.  He has flown to the far reaches of the United States reaching from Presque Isle, Maine in the Northeast to Salinas, CA in the West and Ketchikan, Alaska in the great Northwest to Lakeland, FL in the Southeast.  He has flown extensively since buying his Piper Arrow in Feb 2014 and landed in all of the lower 48 states, Alaska, and Canada.  He considers his Stratus and iPad as part of his Minimum Essential Equipment List for any flight beyond the local area and doesn’t fly without them.  Along with volunteering at AOPA fly-ins, Ed also volunteers his time, talent, and plane to help man and animal in need via Angel Flight East, LifeLine Pilots, and PilotsNPaws.
