When you write the FAA to oppose the ADIZ, here are a few things you should say, in your own words:
Send your message to the FAA, your representatives in Congress, and a copy to AOPA.
The FAA is accepting comments until November 2. Comments may be filed online by going to the Department of Transportation's Docket Management System, clicking "Simple Search," and entering "17005" as the docket number. Then simply click on the "Comment/Submissions" button to enter formal comments.
Alternatively, written comments may be mailed to: Docket Management Facility, U.S. Department of Transportation, 400 Seventh St. SW, Washington, DC, 20590, or faxed to 202/493-2251. Be sure to include the official Docket Number: FAA-2004-17005.
Find the addresses for your U.S. representative and senators.
Please send AOPA a copy of your comments: AOPA, 421 Aviation Way, Frederick, MD 21701, or email@example.com.

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?”
