AOPA is continuing its nonstop efforts to restore VFR privileges in Class B airspace. However, the FAA and Congress are taking the long Columbus Day holiday, and nothing will happen until they return. Congress adjourned Thursday, and most members traveled back to their home districts. AOPA's vice president for air traffic services was in FAA headquarters Saturday but reports that there were few senior decision-makers in the building. Much of the hard work done last week, including AOPA member phone calls to Congress and AOPA's visits to Capitol Hill, should begin to bear results this coming week. The FAA focused on reopening Reagan National Airport to commercial flights last week; this week AOPA will push the agency to concentrate on general aviation.
