Daniel J. McElroy, AOPA 931332, of Columbus, Indiana, and his family - including wife Elli and son Dan Jr. - are among the position holders for an Eclipse 500. All three are experienced pilots - the elder McElroy is a former Delta Air Lines captain, Elli is a former regional airline pilot, and Dan Jr. is a private pilot - and shared their perspectives on flying the 500 with AOPA. In "Flying By Looking" each of the three pilots discuss their experience as pilot in command of the Eclipse. In the two accompanying stories, McElroy examines the transition to glass cockpits and trend monitors.
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?”
