The fees aircraft owners pay to register their aircraft in Rhode Island would be used to support airport infrastructure at the state's GA airports if state legislators pass House Bill 6846. The bill would shift the collection of those fees from the state's tax administrator to the Rhode Island Aviation Corporation.
"Aircraft registration fees can be utilized more effectively and efficiently to directly support the state's community airports," said Owen Sweeney, AOPA manager of state and local government affairs, in a letter to the Finance Committee. "This would result in safer and better-managed airports and would ensure that fees collected from Rhode Island's pilots are used for aviation purposes."

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?”
