In an effort to increase air traffic efficiency and safety, the FAA is proposing a new T-route (T-276) that would allow pilots on IFR flight plans in aircraft with IFR-certified GPS receivers to bypass the busy Portland Class C airspace. AOPA will be requesting a low minimum en route altitude in its comments supporting the T-route. Pilots are encouraged to submit their own comments on the T-route by June 13. Comments should be sent to: U.S. Department of Transportation, Docket Operations, M-30, 1200 New Jersey Avenue S.E., West Building Ground Floor, Room W12-140, Washington, D.C. 20590-0001. For more information, see the proposed rule and AOPA’s advocacy brief.

FAA Systems and Airspace,
Department of Transportation,
Aircraft and Avionics,
For pilots, the 60,000-plus-member Civil Air Patrol readily comes to mind when an aerial role in a rescue is launched.
The basics haven’t changed—flying clubs are still a cost-effective way to fly and enjoy the company of your fellow aviators.
The Flying Musicians will appear at the upcoming 110th anniversary of powered flight celebration in North Carolina.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
