Atlas hosts AOPA Expo 2005: Atlas Aviation is proud to have been chosen by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) to host the 2005 Expo from November 3-5. Peter O. Knight was home to 100 of the latest aircraft! As the closest airport to the Tampa Convention Center, Peter O. Knight was the natural choice for easy access to all of the events! We shut down Runway 17-35 and used acres of smooth grass to make sure there was plenty of room for transient aircraft parking.
