AOPA is asking members to weigh in on the impact of a National Weather Service (NWS) decision to shut down two weather reporting stations in south-central Alaska.
NWS has discontinued weather observations from the Big River Lakes (PALV) and Hayes River (PAHZ) stations. The two contract weather stations provided observations for the east side of Lake Clark, Merrill, and Rainy Passes.
AOPA is soliciting members’ feedback about the decision. Please let the association know how and how often you made use of observations from the weather stations, and what impact the closures may have on your flight operations. Specific examples of how a flight was affected because of the closure are most helpful.
Please send your comments to AOPA and the National Weather Service.
History abounds at San Marcos, Texas, where the Commemorative Air Force has a hangar full of warbirds and a museum with Doolittle Raider artifacts.
Alaska seaplane pilots will gather at Lake Hood April 26 for a day of free seminars, briefings, and conversation to kick off the season.
The next stop is Putrajaya, Malaysia, on May 17 and 18 for the 2014 Red Bill Air Race World Championship, following an “electrifying” contest in Rovinj, Croatia.
