The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association has set its 2017 Fly-In schedule with one stop planned 177 miles south of Wichita.

Next year’s Fly-Ins will include stops in Camarillo, Calif.; Norman, Okla.; Groton, Conn.; and Tampa, Fla.

The Fly-In, which AOPA began in 2014 in lieu of a single-site national convention, also will be expanded to a two-day-long event.

AOPA officials said the additional day allows it to provide more educational sessions for its members on topics such as mountain flying and owner-performed maintenance.

To date, nearly 44,000 people have attended its Fly-Ins.

The Norman Fly-In will be held Sept.8-9. More information is available at the group’s website, aopa.org.
