An AOPA-supported bill that would increase funding for regional airports throughout Oklahoma is in for a tough fight to get to the state Senate. While House Bill 2082 passed the House with a nearly unanimous vote, it is expected to have a rough time in the Senate's Appropriations Committee. The bill would make 49 regional airports eligible for funding for important enhancements, such as better approaches for aircraft and improved terminals and hangars. These 49 airports are spread across the state and are host to two-thirds of the single-engine aircraft based in Oklahoma. AOPA endorsed this bill and is working with the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission to get it enacted into law. Oklahoma pilots are encouraged to contact their state senators and encourage them to enact this important bill for Oklahoma airports.

The board of Pennsylvania’s Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority will wait 120 days before making a final decision to close Braden Airport, citing community concerns.
Sometimes in politics, the good news is that bad news won’t happen. Thanks to AOPA, antique aircraft collectors and aviation employers in Louisiana dodged legislative bullets that would have raised the costs of aircraft ownership or of doing business.
Question: Is there a visual aid to help me understand notams that change the configuration of an airport during construction?
