AOPA told Sacramento County that the proposed rezoning and development of the Murieta Gardens I and II Project is an incompatible use of land adjacent to the public-use Rancho Murieta Airport. This project would allow for the construction of 208 residences less than 1,000 feet from the end of the runway. "It is the association's experience that allowing noncompatible land uses such as residential development adjacent to vibrant airports is one of the fundamental reasons and a root cause for the ultimate demise of the airport," said AOPA Vice President of Airports Bill Dunn in a letter to Joyce Horizumi, Sacramento County's environmental coordinator, expressing AOPA's strong opposition to this project.

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?”
