Pilots who use motor vehicle gasoline to refuel their aircraft won't have to worry about a shortage of non-blended fuel in Idaho for a while. That's because the state's House Environment, Energy, and Technology Committee has rejected an ethanol blending bill, recommending that the issue be studied sometime after the state legislature adjourns later this spring. Although the bill would have permitted the sale of non-ethanol blended gasoline, it would not have required it. AOPA believes that would have made it difficult for aircraft owners who have supplemental type certificates permitting auto fuel use to obtain gas without the ethanol content.

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?”
