The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) held the second of four AOPA 2016 fly-ins at Bremerton National Airport (KPWT) in Washington state on Aug. 19 and 20. The event drew more aircraft and attendees than any previous AOPA fly-in, according to association officials.
“With more than 4,000 people and nearly 700 aircraft, the AOPA Bremerton Fly-In was our biggest yet,” said AOPA President Mark Baker. “Thanks to the help of the airport staff, local pilots, and volunteers from groups including the Civil Air Patrol, the Experimental Aircraft Association, and the Washington Pilots Association, we were able to bring together thousands of people in the Pacific Northwest who share a common interest in aviation.”
