Florida Rep. Sandra Adams has agreed to amend House Bill 977 to alleviate AOPA's concerns about shifting security oversight for general aviation airports to a different branch of state government. As introduced, H.B. 977 would have given the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) new responsibilities and powers to review and approve security plans for GA airports that have at least one runway greater than 4,999 feet and do not host scheduled passenger-carrying commercial service operations. AOPA Florida Regional Representative Nelson Rhodes has been working with Adam's office, the Florida House Domestic Security Committee, and local aviation groups to amend the bill to entrust such authority to the Florida Department of Transportation, which has a better understanding of aviation issues.

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?”
