Good news for pilots flying through Ohio and Kentucky. They'll have an easier time negotiating the Cincinnati (CVG) Class B airspace starting in December. That's because three new GPS-based Area Navigation IFR Terminal Transition Routes (RITTRs) will become available. The FAA approved the final rule creating the routes on Wednesday.
RITTRs are starting to appear in terminal airspace around the country because of a five-year AOPA effort to have the FAA create new routes based on GPS waypoints to give general aviation pilots better access to airports and airspace.
The RNAV routes can be used by any pilot with an IFR-certified GPS receiver and are strategically placed to give controllers the tools they need to transition pilots through, rather than around, Class B airspace. The routes are similar to Victor airways. On NACO (government-issued) charts, terminal airways are printed in blue.

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?”
