AOPA is preparing a lawsuit against the state of New York to overturn the onerous background check law. Meanwhile, the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services has posted guidance on how it will begin implementing the New York flight school student applicant background check law that went into effect last week. The division is still working out a number of details on how to enforce the law. The Web page, though not yet complete, contains forms for potential students to consent to a background check and for flight schools to designate an individual to receive the background check information. AOPA encourages New York members who have questions about the law to contact the division directly. A contact phone number and e-mail address are listed on the site.

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?”
