General aviation airports are not governed by the same regulations as air carrier airports. And they shouldn't have the same security measures. That's why AOPA is telling the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) that a one-size-fits-all approach to airport security is unacceptable. AOPA opposes a proposal to implement airline-style security operations at L.G. Hanscom Field and Worcester Regional airports. AOPA encourages members to read the security proposal and voice their concerns at 2:30 p.m. on September 5 during a meeting in the Media Room at Boston Logan International Airport. AOPA has also urged Massport to allow additional time and opportunities for input from GA pilots.

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?”
