Tuesday, November 5, is Election Day across the United States, with the entire U.S. House of Representatives, a third of the U.S. Senate, and numerous governors' mansions up for grabs. AOPA strongly encourages everyone, member and non-member alike, to go to the polls tomorrow and cast a vote.
AOPA has assembled an analysis of members of Congress who have taken positions supporting general aviation. The association understands that selecting a candidate to vote for is a complex process based on a number of factors. The analysis is offered as a resource for those voters who factor in GA issues when deciding how to vote. It outlines positions taken by a number of congressional candidates on matters related to general aviation.
Regardless of your party affiliation, regardless of your stance on general aviation, AOPA urges each American to fulfill your obligation, take part in the democracy, make your voice heard, and vote on Election Day.
Environmental groups are asking the EPA to take another look at avgas even as a government-industry program moves closer to finding unleaded alternatives.
Collaboration between the German government, academia, and airplane manufacturers may make future aircraft cabins more protective of pilots and passengers. The Safety Box team plans to apply auto racing technology to general aviation.
A father and his 14-year-old son were helping another pilot ferry a newly purchased aircraft from California to their home field in Virginia. The three made an overnight stop in Albuquerque before flying on to Illinois for fuel. But shortly after they parked the aircraft in Marion, Ill., they were approached by as many as 18 uniformed and non-uniformed law enforcement officers who came running toward the airplane.
