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.
Pilots and aircraft owners have volunteered to transport hundreds of sea turtles rescued in Massachusetts to facilities equipped to care for them.
The FAA is working to automate a contingency plan developed on the fly when Chicago Center was taken out by arson from within Sept. 26.
AOPA has urged College Park, Maryland, to make approval of a hotel construction project near the city airport conditional on reducing the building’s height.
