  • The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association is hosting a season of free aviation-themed movies screened in the association’s new National Aviation Community Center at Frederick Municipal Airport.

    The free movie night is on Saturdays twice a month between April and October in the National Aviation Community Center, a large hangar recently updated by AOPA.

    Visitors will get the chance to fly a flight simulator and tour the AOPA aircraft before, during and after each show. Free hot dogs, soda and popcorn will be available.

    The NACC is at 296 Bucheimer Road, Frederick.

    Movies will range from aviation classics such as “Spirit of St. Louis” and “Top Gun” to lighter fare like “Airplane” and, for younger aviators, “Planes and Planes: Fire and Rescue.”
    Each movie night begins at 6 p.m., with the show starting at 7 p.m.

    AOPA personnel will be on hand to answer questions about general aviation and flight training, airport operations and aircraft. To learn more,
