AOPA has filed comments supporting an FAA plan to create two new low-altitude area navigation (RNAV) routes around the congested Class B airspace surrounding St. Louis. Through an agreement between Kansas City Center and St. Louis Approach, pilots already have been vectored onto the new routes, T- 251 and T-272. Once all comments have been reviewed and the FAA has made a decision, the routes could be charted in as little as four months, allowing pilots to request the T-routes as part of their flight plans. AOPA has supported T- routes since 2000 as a means to help general aviation traffic avoid congestion in and around Class B airspace; the routes are currently used in North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, and California, and they are in development in Atlanta.

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?”
