Pilot Getaways is the bimonthly travel magazine for pilots and their families. We focus on having fun with your airplane at destinations from backcountry strips to exclusive fly-in resorts.


March/April 2012

Despite a few last-ditch efforts by winter to hang on, spring is upon us. It’s time to tune up your flying skills, turn on the ignition, and go flying! Once again, we’ve got you covered coast to coast, from Florida to California and points between. Take an exciting aerobatic flight, complete an Emergency Maneuver Training program, or pick up pointers on flying a retractable—all in this issue. We’ve got fly-in dining destinations, a historic town near Washington D.C., and a quaint seaside city, all easily accessible to general aviation pilots.

We Acquire American Air Campers Association

Pilot Getaways magazine has teamed up with our friends at the Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF) to acquire the American Air Campers Association (AACA). We are proud to provide you, our valued Pilot Getaways subscribers, FREE access to AACA’s online detailed database of airplane camping facilities, transportation, attractions, dining, and lodging at more than 600 airports nationwide.

This agreement combines the best of our three organizations: the great information about fun places to fly in Pilot Getaways, access to AACA’s useful database of more than 600 airplane camping facilities, and the labors of the RAF, a non-profit organization that has been successful in keeping your favorite airstrips open and even creating new public use airstrips!

January/February 2012

Our first issue of the year is packed with winter flying ideas from coast to coast, and even farther… to the Hawaiian coast! We show you fun new places to exercise your flying privilege as pilot-in-command, even if it’s too wintery for flying in your neighborhood. In addition to flying an airplane around Maui for the ultimate pilot’s tropical vacation, we’ve also got trips in the Southwest, Midwest, and Chesapeake Bay.

September/October 2011

Now that the long days of summer are beginning to shorten and the temperatures are starting to cool, it is a perfect time to hop into your airplane and enjoy some unique getaways. This issue has some wonderful escapes from a private Montana grass strip right next to Glacier National Park, to a desert sandstone canyon with ancient Native American ruins. There’s also an amusement park with the world’s largest collection of roller coasters, and a city that’s “always 72 degrees.”
