Airline Pilots Association OPPOSE IT   FREDERICK, MD – An amendment to the Senate highway bill now under consideration that includes third-class medical reform language will receive the strong support of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) and its members, according to AOPA President Mark Baker. The amendment, which was filed by Sens. Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia) and John Boozman (R-Arkansas), mirrors language in the Pilot’s Bill of Rights 2 (PBR2).

SEE POSTER FOR TIME AND DATES...  CLICK ON POSTER TO ENLARGE! By Martin Miller, Airport Manager, Great Bend Municipal Airport(KGB), Kansas   Putting together a 3-day event with the world’s only flying B-29 involves a good amount of serendipity. As Sep. 18 approaches, Great Bend Airfest 2015 has settled into a impressive display of warbirds, both static display and ride-sellers. Along with FIFI, Gunfighter, a premier CAF P-51, Miss Mitchell, their B-25, and the C-45 Expeditor, PT-23, A-26, and UC-78 will be selling rides. Bob Baker’s pair of P-51’s, flown by the twin Patillo brothers in World War II, John Swartz’s F-86, and Greg Colyer’s T-33 Acemaker will spend time in the pattern all three days. The AC-47 gunship Spooky will arrive for three days of tours. Fly-ins for this event should plan to arrive for the pancake breakfast, and enter the free drawing for the 2:00 p.m. ride in Gunfighter on Saturday. ...
