AOPA Aviation Summit, November 5-7, 2009

The AOPA Aviation Summit is open to all (who pay the entry fee, of course!), and there will be some aviation movies/documentaries to be seen there.

The producers of "A Pilot's Story", Rico Sharqawi & Will Hawkins will be participating in the first-ever AOPA Aviation Summit "GA at the Movies" Luncheon.

AOPA President and CEO Craig L. Fuller will kick off this exciting event by presenting the Joseph B. "Doc" Hartranft Award and the Laurence P. Sharples Perpetual Award to recognize each winner's contributions to general aviation.

During the three-course lunch, attendees will get a behind-the-scenes look at two aviation movies, "A Pilot's Story" and "Amelia [starring Hilary Swank as Amelia Earhart]." Will & Rico will talk with Mr. Fuller about why they're making the film, what's surprised them about pilots, and the highs and lows of the production process. Then, key contributors from "Amelia" will share their insider perspective on how the freedom and adventure of the legendary aviator's life were captured on the silver screen.
