You know autumn has arrived when birds start fleeing south, kids start getting up early for school, and the leaves start turning. This also means it’s a great time to go flying. Pilot Getaways has a fall full of ideas for fun getaways, including Maine for colorful foliage and red lobster dinners, Long Beach, which is handy for those attending the annual AOPA Aviation Summit conference, and a great getaway in the middle of the huge Idaho wilderness next to the Salmon River with some of the West’s best steelhead fishing.
