It will soon be Super Bowl time in Glendale, Ariz., but AOPA is working to make sure local airports around Phoenix don't ignore based pilots just to cash in on the big event. AOPA Manager of State Legislative Affairs Joey Colleran and AOPA Western Regional Representative Stacy Howard visited Glendale Municipal Airport this week to encourage airport officials to accommodate local pilots during the anticipated influx of Super Bowl air traffic. AOPA previously pointed out that the airport has accepted federal funding and must remain open and accessible to pilots who operate at the airport for business and pleasure. Although more remains to be done, airport officials have made efforts to work with tenants in order to accommodate visitors during the Super Bowl.
