Missouri pilots who use auto gas supplemental type certificates will still be able to get nonethanol-blended fuel for their aircraft even if Gov. Matt Blount signs a bill requiring some level of ethanol blending. That's because AOPA Midwest Regional Representative Bob Dickens worked alongside others in the aviation community to ensure the availability of nonethanol-blended gasoline for STC users. The bill initially exempted only aviation fuel from blending requirements, but responding to concerns from pilots, the bill on Blount's desk also exempts automotive gasoline used in aircraft and all premium gasoline.

AOPA VOICES STRONG SUPPORT FOR LEGISLATION REQUIRING FAA TO REVISE THIRD CLASS MEDICAL REQUIREMENTS
AOPA Foundation President Bruce Landsberg has challenged AOPA President Mark Baker to a dogfight. The battle? To see who can bring in the most "Hat in the Ring Society" donors before the end of the year to support aviation safety, promote community airports, and encourage more people to fly.
Shell announced Dec. 3 the development of an unleaded aviation fuel that will be submitted for certification as a "performance drop-in" avgas replacement.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
