Planning to practice some instrument approaches at Frederick Municipal Airport in Frederick, Md.? Be aware that a waypoint on the missed approach procedure for the Runway 23 RNAV (GPS) Z instrument approach procedure lies within the Washington, D.C., Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ). When the ADIZ changed from its “Mickey Mouse” shape to a smaller 30-nautical-mile radius in August 2007, it actually moved closer to Frederick Municipal, enveloping the waypoint (the FEDIT intersection). However, the ADIZ is not charted on the IAP chart. AOPA has asked the FAA to immediately chart the ADIZ on all affected IAP charts and is working to have the MAP moved outside the ADIZ.

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?”
