Happy New Year!
Welcome to the January Issue of The BAC Bulletin & DA News!
As the winter is fully upon us, in this issue we present you with some tips on flying in below freezing weather. We hope you find it a great reminder on how to keep your aircraft flying optimally and yourself safe. The second article focuses on the FAA’s new registration requirements, and the possibility of Senate hearings on aircraft registration announced a few weeks ago. We hope you find this issue informative. The teams at BAC & DA hope you enjoyed your holidays, and we look forward to a wonderful 2011 of flying and fun with you!
