AOPA Introduces Poker Run National Flight Challenge

The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association introduces the Poker Run National Flight Challenge. The first poker run of its kind!

Designed by pilots, for pilots, players collect their hand of virtual cards following a 7 Card Stud inspired format. Check-in at different airports around the US and earn a new card at each check-in for a chance to win awesome prize packages! The AOPA Poker Run National Challenge runs from July 1, 2022, to September 30, 2022.


Each participant will earn a new card when they check in at public-use airports using the AOPA Pilot Passport program built into the AOPA App (AOPA App version 2.6 or higher is required to play). Cards can be earned between July 1st, 2022, and September 30th, 2022, and playing hands must have all 7 cards to be eligible. Winners will be selected and announced on or before Oct 6th, 2022. Playing cards are issued just like other Pilot Passport badges. A participant can earn more than one card per day, but the airports visited must be different, even when checking-in on different days. Once a player has all 7 cards in their hand, the Pilot Passport system will automatically choose the best 5 cards that will become the player’s final hand. Read the full rules HERE.

Description automatically generated prizes are awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place participants with the best hands – and there’s a consolation prize for the worst hand, too!
