Since September 11, 2001, the FAA has advised owners and operators of airfields of the potential for follow-on terrorist attacks. Recent statements, apparently by Al Qaeda leaders, threaten attacks against U.S. economic interests.
As we have done in the past, the FAA is seeking your cooperation in helping to safeguard the air transportation system. We believe that it is prudent to inform airport and airfield operators of our concerns. Accordingly, to help keep public and private airfields safe and secure, we need your help.
REMEMBER: If you see something highly dangerous, such as weapons or explosives being loaded on an aircraft, or if you have other reason to believe that a serious crime or some sort of attack is about to occur, immediately call local law enforcement authorities!
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?”
