The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association loves to come to Palm Springs because it is the only place that lets them actually taxi their airplanes directly to the convention center. And Palm Springs loves to have the AOPA come here. The convention brings up to 15,000 people, making it the largest conference to come to Palm Springs. And by definition, people who own their own airplanes have money — just the kind of visitors we like! So what if they block our streets while they drive their planes around town.
