Aircraft Electronics Association Announces Free Guide, Cash Prize


Published annually by the Aircraft Electronics Association, the 2022-23 edition of the AEA Pilot’s Guide will be unveiled with free distribution at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh this week. AEA staff members will distribute thousands of complimentary copies to pilots and aircraft owners at AEA’s booth, 2035-2036, in Hangar B.

This year marks the 20th annual edition of the AEA Pilot’s Guide, a consumer’s directory loaded with educational articles, timely information, and data about the ever-changing world of avionics technologies. The publication helps pilots and aircraft owners make better buying decisions and locate nearly 1,300 AEA member companies in more than 40 countries, including government-certified repair stations specializing in maintenance, repair, and installation of avionics and electronic systems in general aviation aircraft. It also includes the manufacturers and distributors of these products, as well as technical schools and universities, engineers, and consultants for the industry.

In addition to the initial distribution at AirVenture, thousands of copies of the AEA Pilot’s Guide will be distributed at several industry trade shows and to all AEA member companies at no charge.

Individuals residing in the United States may request a free copy of the AEA Pilot’s Guide at AEAPilotsGuide.net/request.asp while supplies last.

In addition to the AEA Pilot’s Guide, the organization will randomly award five aircraft owners with $1,000 toward an avionics upgrade during AirVenture.

Aircraft owners may enter to win one of the five $1,000 awards in Hangar B, Booth 2035-2036, beginning July 25. The AEA will announce one winner each day from July 25 through July 29 via its social media outlets on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Aircraft owners must be at least 18 years old to register to win. Each of the five winners must use an AEA member avionics repair station to complete the installation. Each entry gives aircraft owners a chance to win one of the five daily drawings. For official rules and contest entry forms, visit AEA’s booth in Hangar B.
