"I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody."
CHANGED TO NOVEMBER 3,
DUE TO WEATHER
The General Aviation Restoration Fund was announced to an enthusiastic audience of 500 people during an FAA Wings Weekend banquet speech given by AOPA President Phil Boyer last Saturday at the Greenville Downtown Airport in South Carolina. AOPA is launching this sweeping education program to inform the public and government officials about general aviation's positive contributions and significant economic impact that stretch across America. Following the tragic events of September 11, the dissemination of misinformation caused many Americans and high-level government officials to needlessly fear and restrict GA. As a result, GA faces a major backlash that not only threatens the freedom of flight, but also is harmful to our national economy. AOPA is sending out information packets to all members along with window stickers featuring the AOPA logo and an American flag. See

LAST MINUTE UPDATE FROM WPA
This is a quick update to my email yesterday on TFRs in the area.
As of today, Friday 2 Nov, we have a new one to worry about:
A new TFR has been added for the Trojan Generating Station, 42 miles north of Portland. This one joins the ones for the Columbia Generating Station, 12 miles NW of Richland and the Hanford Site, 13 miles NW of Richland. These TFRs are for a 10 mile radius and from ground to 18,000ft.
Be careful out there!
