Pilots flying with an IFR GPS will soon have an easier way to get around Georgia’s Bulldog MOA complex. Beginning June 5, pilots will be able to file flight plans for T-209, a GPS-based route that offers more direct north-south routing for GA aircraft transitioning through the Augusta, Ga., area. The FAA issued the final rule despite objections from the U.S. Air Force, which was concerned that the new route would interfere with a proposed expansion of the Bulldog MOA. In its ruling creating T-209, the FAA noted that no decision had yet been made about the Bulldog MOA proposal. The final route also differs slightly from the original proposal, with the NASDE waypoint moved 4.2 miles to the west. AOPA has supported the creation of T-routes for over a decade.

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?”
