The FAA announced Wednesday that the origination point of Victor 537 will be changed from the Vero Beach vortac to the Palm Beach vortac. Previously, pilots flying from Vero Beach to the Palm Beach terminal area had to be cleared through multiple Victor airways. This modification, however, incorporates that route into an extension of V537. This will help "reduce pilot-controller communications, alleviate radio frequency congestion, reduce the potential for pilot readback errors, and enhance the management of aircraft operations in the Vero Beach-Palm Beach area," according to the FAA. "AOPA applauds the FAA for its continued efforts to improve navigation in the National Airspace System," said Heidi Williams, AOPA director of air traffic services. The change will become effective October 27.

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?”
