Representative Jim Holm State Capitol, Room 110 Juneau, AK 99801-1182
Dear Representative Holm,
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) is a membership association consisting of over 400,000 pilots and aircraft owners nationwide, 4,600 of whom reside in the State of Alaska. AOPA is committed to ensuring the continued viability, growth, and development of aviation and airports in Alaska and the United States.
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association strongly supports House Bill 474, regarding civil liability relating to runways, airfields, and landing areas. This bill will help protect airport owner and operators that devote their time and resources to operate and maintain airstrips and landing areas in Alaska.
We anticipate that this bill will help protect the operation of these vital components of our transportation infrastructure.
On behalf of the 4,600 AOPA members in Alaska, thank you for sponsoring this bill.
Tom George Alaska Regional Representative
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?”
