SSA and Region 2 Join Forces at the AOPA Convention

Metrics for the event included:

· Personal contact was made with an estimated 2,000 power pilots

· 445 pilots for were registered for a drawing of a free SSA membership and glider flying material

· Over 400 Soaring magazines were distributed

· 52 glider orientation packages were sold, that included Tom Knauff's Transition to Gliders book

· Over 300 pilots were referred to Region 2 soaring sites

· Over 200 pilots were referred to National soaring sites

The Pennsylvania Glider Council offered a glider orientation package that was very successful. This was termed "The $99 Deal", with the specific thought that many power pilots are lucky to get one-hour of flight time for $99. The package consists of two flights in one of PGCs G-103's, one- hour of glider ground school, and the book Transition to Gliders.

This positive experience is being viewed as a model for SSA promotional activities at future aviation conventions. Many thanks to all the volunteers from Region 2 that helped make this event possible.
