Proposed construction of the New Paseo Bridge has been put on hold indefinitely since the Missouri Department of Transportation (MDOT) rescinded its application for an obstruction evaluation. Twice AOPA had formally expressed its safety-related concerns with the proposed bridge, which would have forced all traffic pattern operations to the west side of the airport. The association also had asked the FAA to determine the proposed bridge a hazard to air navigation. Such a ruling would have prevented MDOT from moving forward with the bridge construction had it continued to pursue the development. “We’ll continue to monitor the issue to make sure these concerns are addressed in any applications for the bridge’s construction or other nearby projects,” said Heidi Williams, AOPA senior director of airports.

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?”
