AOPA: Such a Deal We Have for You

The AOPA Airport Guide for $19.95. The list price was $39.95.

This is the same guide that, until just recently, that the AOPA gave away to its members for free. Before that, it was an annual publication, then AOPA went to publishing the guide every two years.

Hey, they paid Phil Boyer close to two million bucks in `09. No wonder they couldn't afford to give the guides away anymore.

Best thing about not being current is not getting that junk mail.

Dear Miss Fit:

I really don't have a big problem with Mr. Boyer's deferred compensation plan. Everybody knew what the deal was, and he did a great job (IMO) as President of the organization for many years.

(It's the current incumbent that I have a problem with.)

Regards,

Frank
