The two newest AOPA Air Safety Foundation online courses, Mountain Flying and Engine and Propeller, won ADDY awards last month in the mid-Maryland preliminaries for the national ADDY competition. The American Advertising Federation awards honor the best in advertising, marketing, and communication.
Both ASF trophies came in the Public Service/Interactive category.
Mountain Flying highlights challenges unfamiliar to most flatland fliers, teaching the unique challenges of flying where airport elevations can be higher than a pilot's usual cruise altitude.
Engine and Propeller brings practical engine management and maintenance education to general aviation pilots. Both courses are free and available to all pilots.

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?”
