The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) and ForeFlight, a Boeing Company, have teamed up to encourage and reward pilots for simply flying more often starting in October.
Pilots will be automatically entered to win the ForeFlight Frequent Filer Sweepstakes once they file and activate a flight plan in ForeFlight (on mobile or web). The ForeFlight incentives include a monthly drawing for prizes including a free one-year Performance Plus subscription, a limited-edition ForeFlight Wall Poster, and a ForeFlight Swag Bag. Pilots are also automatically entered to win a grand prize that includes a 10.5 inch iPad Air, a ForeFlight Performance Plus subscription, a Sentry Portable ADS-B Receiver, and other prizes. A new winner will be picked each month until the end of the year. Check out the official rules here.
“There is no easier and more convenient way to file than with ForeFlight,” said Stephen Newman, ForeFlight executive vice president of global sales & marketing. “You can plan, file, and brief in a matter of minutes, and then get ATC messages, quickly make amendments, and fly all with one integrated app. We are always happy to work with our partners at AOPA to equip pilots with what they need for safe and more enjoyable flying,” said Newman.
AOPA is also offering monthly prizes for simply checking into an airport using the AOPA app’s Pilot Passport feature after arrival. Pilots have an opportunity to win an AOPA Pilot Gear prize pack valued at $50. AOPA will offer up a different monthly challenge through the end of the year, giving active pilots even more chances to win.
The October Pilot Passport Challenge encourages pilots to check-in at airports around the country to earn points toward state badges. The top three participants with the most state badges earned in October will be awarded a prize. Check out the official rules here.
“AOPA is excited to partner with ForeFlight to reward pilots who fly more and file more,” said Jiri Marousek, AOPA’s chief marketing officer.
“Our shared mission is to encourage more pilots to fly more often and to more places. And filing, even VFR flights, makes us better and safer pilots,” Marousek said. “With rewards from AOPA for flying to more airports and rewards from ForeFlight for engaging with its user-friendly filing platform, pilots have even more reason to get out there and do some great flying!” said Marousek.
