Mark Baker, AOPA's new president, says that while the cost of flying can be a challenge, he is optimistic about the future of general aviation. "We've got a rush of innovation happening in avionics, airframes, training and everything in between. We've got millions of people in this country who say they'd like to learn to fly. And we've got hundreds of thousands of active pilots who are committed to GA and want to share what they love," Baker said.
