Pilots at Sanderson Field in Shelton, Washington, soon won't have to worry about encroachment at the airport. The city is finalizing a plan for an overlay zone for the airport that will prevent incompatible land use. "We applaud your leadership in moving forward to create this overlay zone - which will protect the airport now and into the future," wrote AOPA Senior Liaison of Airports John Collins in a letter to city officials, encouraging them to adopt a plan as soon as possible. A Washington growth management act requires cities and counties to protect airports from incompatible land use. Local pilots and AOPA Airport Support Network volunteer Jack Krause were instrumental in working with the city to develop this plan.

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?”
