It was an expensive lesson for a San Diego developer. And now you can watch him pay for it via our “deconstruction cam.”
Sunroad Enterprises defied the San Diego city attorney, the FAA, and the California Department of Transportation when it built a too-tall building seven-tenths of a mile from a Montgomery Field runway. Now deconstruction work has begun to lop two stories off the top of the building.
AOPA helped those fighting the contractor and was a party to a lawsuit against Sunroad. On June 22, San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders ordered the contractor to remove the floors because the building was a hazard to air navigation.
AOPA members helped make it all happen!

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?”
