The first annual Arizona Aviation Day was held on February 9 on the capitol lawn in Phoenix and was by all accounts a great success. With more than 200 attendees, including 20 to 30 legislators, Arizona's general aviation community demonstrated the benefits of GA to one of the nation's fastest growing states. Organized by a committee including AOPA's Western Regional Representative Stacy Howard, the event included presentations from Howard, the Arizona Airports Association, Honeywell, the National Business Aviation Association, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the Arizona Pilots Association, and Arizona State University. Gov. Janet Napolitano issued a proclamation declaring "Aviation Day in Arizona." Napolitano has been a strong supporter of aviation, having established in September 2004 the Governor's Advisory Council on Aviation.

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?”
