Lakeland, FL – The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association is pleased to support the Obama Administration’s nomination of acting Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Administrator Michael Huerta to a full term.
"We congratulate Michael Huerta on being nominated as FAA administrator,” said AOPA President Craig Fuller. “We have appreciated the attention he has given to the concerns of general aviation and look forward to a constructive and productive working relationship.”
Huerta’s reputation for managing complex transportation challenges led to him being tapped as a managing director for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, where he was critical in the planning and construction of a variety of transportation facilities.
Prior to joining the FAA, Huerta held senior positions at Affiliated Computer Services, now a Xerox company specializing in business processes and information technology. He also served as commissioner of New York City's Department of Ports, International Trade and Commerce and as executive director of the Port of San Francisco.

As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
