First, are you an AOPA member? If so, what level did you decide to join at and why? I see 4 different annual membership options, and 2 lifetime options. Have you ever had reason to use the added services that AOPA offers? I'm still researching, but do medical providers (specifically Fairbanks) give discounts for FAA member medicals?
Secondly, how have you seen membership rates and services change, and over what time frame?
Third, how long have you been a member, and if for an extended time, and are not a lifetime member, why did you decide to just maintain an annual membership?
Fourth, do you carry any insurance for either your aircraft hull or liability? If so, who is your insurance provider, and why did you choose them?
I'm getting ready to renew my insurance policy (hull/liability) that I have w/ AOPA. I did not buy a membership last year, and now can't understand why I did not, as it appears AOPA gives a 5% discount for members on insurance. For a $2600 premium that would pay for the "Premier" level of annual membership plus more.
June 28 I'll have flown for 1 year. At this time I've got in over 130 hours in the C-170. Time to plan for the next 12 months. Life has been GREAT!
