AVweb's AOPA Review: In The Wings
As promised, AVweb's comprehensive review of AOPA's finances, operations and mission is in progress, with a planned publication date as soon as we complete our research. Readers may recall that AOPA challenged our story earlier this month when we reported AOPA compensation figures filed with the IRS, citing our misinterpretation of recently changed IRS rules. AVweb questioned some AOPA salaries and payouts, even as most companies in the industry are laying off workers and rolling back wages. To prove its point, AOPA agreed to give AVweb additional information and to answer detailed questions about expenditures, its business development strategy and how it uses its considerable assets. We have provided the association with an exhaustive list of questions. AOPA has provided us with equally exhaustive responses, and our dialog is continuing. We received an overwhelming volume of e-mail on the subject and if you have comments or questions on the story, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
