AOPA has volunteered "November 4 GA," its member-owned Cessna CitationJet, to aid in national relief efforts. AOPA told the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that the aircraft's short-field capability enables it to carry four passengers or 1,000 pounds of cargo into most airfields along the East Coast. Aircraft owners who wish to volunteer the use of their aircraft may fax FEMA at 202/501-1439. Include a description of the aircraft, where it is located, and contact information.
Pilot Safety and Skills,
Your mission: Fly with eight F-15s to the Philippines, rejoin, refuel with air tankers, engage an unknown number of Red Air fighters, refuel again, and then return home to Okinawa. And fly with radio silence up to the first contact with the Red Air fighters.
The Aviation Safety Reporting System is a voluntary safety reporting program that allows airmen to make anonymous reports to the government about issues encountered in aviation, with anonymity allowing the airman to be candid–even when their actions may have been a violation of the regulations.
