Do you fly IFR? The FAA wants your help to modify the RNAV IFR route structure in Alaska to take advantage of GPS-WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) capabilities and make it possible to consider lower altitude routes and access to new locations. [See the FAA's proposed T (below 18,000 feet) and Q (above 18,000 feet) routes.] "This is the ideal approach—AOPA is constantly asking the FAA to involve pilots in these types of decisions," said Heidi Williams, AOPA director of air traffic services. "Pilots can provide the best guidance because they understand the challenges of navigating around the state's terrain in severe weather conditions."

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?”
