As the sole industry using leaded fuel, general aviation is increasingly coming under the microscope because of environmental concerns. A petition already has been filed with the Environmental Protection Agency to limit the use of 100LL.
Learn about the petition, the EPA’s response, and actions the GA industry is taking to create a suitable alternative fuel at AOPA Aviation Summit in Tampa, Fla. In addition to learning about these initiatives, you’ll have a chance to participate in the “Future of Avgas” forum at 2 p.m. on Nov. 5.
To have the panel address your fuel-related questions, submit your questions now to AOPA. AOPA will review the questions and ask the panelists.
Panelists include some of the leaders spearheading the move from leaded to unleaded fuel: General Aviation Manufacturers Association Vice President of Certification Walter Desrosier, EAA Vice President of Industry and Regulatory Affairs Earl Lawrence, EPA Nonroad Center Director Glenn Passavant, and FAA Fuels Specialist Mark Rumizen.
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?”
