These are the rewards for doing something you love and already do: flying into and out of your local airports. To promote and publicize their general aviation airports, many states across the country have “passport” or ambassador programs in which they offer a passport book that can be stamped to keep a record of landing at each airport; present it to claim an incentive prize. Get a stamp at just five of the 75 Maine airports, for example, and a twin lobster dinner awaits you on the Maine Flying Trail. Arkansas. The Arkansas Aviation Ambassador Program challenges you to visit between 30 and 70 airports in the state to qualify for different levels of rebate checks. Maine.
