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.
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) has awarded its third annual Flight Training Excellence Awards to top flight schools and flight instructors ranked by more than 3,600 flight students who voluntarily reviewed their flight training experience through an AOPA online poll.
For decades, pilots have headed to Bay Bridge Airport in the Chesapeake Bay for scenic coastal flying and great seafood. Check it out after attending the AOPA Homecoming Fly-In on Oct. 4.
Maintenance experts have asked the FAA to clarify whether recurring inspections of Cessna 210-series aircraft can be mandated without following required rulemaking procedures.
