The time came again that I was asked for that yearly donation of AOPA dues, and unfortunately I was paying off a debt and couldn't get to it, so right now my AOPA membership is void. Now that I do have some cash flow again, I've begun to think: What purpose does the AOPA membership have for me? I don't get to attend the big fly-ins because I just don't have that much money to fly. Turbomedical is nice, but since filling out the form pretty much consists of "No Change" for me now, I don't see the point in that. I don't currently take advantage of renter's insurance, owner's insurance, legal plan, etc etc (see the point about limited cash flow). About the only thing that I've seen worthwhile is the attempt to hold off user fees. So should that be the only reason I renew my membership? Perhaps I'm just missing something.
