AOPA wants Alaska members to be aware of two airspace proposals in the works. The first one would decommission the Bishop NDB and alter airways B-4, R-50, B-12, and G-7. It also would create a new airway, R-4. The FAA says the decommissioning needs to happen because the NDB sits along the banks of the Yukon River and the reception is poor. The second proposal would lower the floor of the Gulf of Alaska Low controlled airspace area to 700 feet msl. The floor of the Control 1487L Offshore airspace area would be lowered to 1,200 feet msl. The FAA wants to provide additional controlled airspace for IFR operations at Yakutat Airport. Comments on both proposals are due January 23.

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?”
