Through the FAA's Alaska Weather Camera Web site, Alaska pilots can actually look at the weather in different regions of the state before taking flight. The FAA is examining the design of the Web site and is seeking user input on proposed changes to be sure they are user friendly. AOPA encourages pilots to share their feedback about the Weather Camera Web site. Sessions are scheduled from 1 to 3 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. at the University of Alaska Aviation Complex, 2811 Merrill Field Drive in Anchorage, on Wednesday, August 9. For details, download this notice. AOPA has requested that additional meetings be offered at other locations in the future.

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?”
