The FAA will be conducting an environmental study of the proposed Delta Military Operations Area (MOA) complex in Delta Junction, Alaska. AOPA is opposing the proposed MOA because it would shut off the only corridor that bisects the Pacific Alaska Airspace Complex, which covers about 60,780 square miles. AOPA has explained to the Air Force that when active, the MOA would sever the IFR airways between Fairbanks, Delta Junction, Northway, and Glennallen, and expose VFR traffic to high-speed military aircraft flying along a heavily traveled corridor. AOPA wants the proposed MOA to be divided into a high and low complex, so that the entire area does not need to be active at the same time.

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?”
