    First, a disclaimer: I have no training in survival systems, and the following is based on my own personal research. I am speaking for myself, not EAA.

    My understanding is that military fixed-wing...

    It really depends on the condition, the AME, and whether the applicant has already done their homework (which feeds back to the AME being on top of things). Routine initial AASI cases like apnea and...

    The FAA generally takes about a month to render a decision on medicals, and that can stretch out a bit if the system is stressed (as it is now). That said, OSA is one of the easiest special issuances...

    What Ron and Dana said, with emphasis on "until the medical expires." With few exceptions, you're free to fly under Sport Pilot (subject to FAR 61.53(c)(2)) once your medical is no longer valid...

    We've had verbal indications from at least one insurer who stated that they would not pursue policyholders with expired medicals under this policy. I would get that in writing before flying, however....

    I attended the March ARAC for EAA. MOSAIC was not discussed in the rulemaking update, but that wasn't necessarily a surprise. Despite its name, ARAC does not have oversight of all rulemaking the FAA...

    I checked with a well-placed FAA source, and he categorically denied this. We're still on track. The latest we heard (pre-lockdown) was that they planned to go into formal rulemaking mode over the...

    While we've been focused on sending a clear message directly to the FAA through the commenting process, all options are certainly on the table moving forward, including enlisting legislative support....

    There was no specific reason given, we simply inquired about participation and was told the ARC was full. FAA determines ARC membership at their discretion.

    EAA's final comments are here: https://eaa.org/-/media/Files/EAA/Advocacy/03-03-2020-RemoteIDcomments

    The final tally is 51,006 comments. Thank you to all who added your voice!

    That appears to be a term used by the forthcoming ASTM standard on Remote ID, and it's in a Drone Advisory Committee recommendation on voluntary RID participation. Based on the limited information...

    Hi Doug,

    You are correct on the point that under the FAA's proposal, the device must transmit to USS. Our comment guidelines were somewhat simplified and we did not make that point clear.

    For...

    We're aware of the language too, and it's very similar to what we're asking the FAA to exempt from the requirement. The only issue with hanging our hat on the reauthorization language is that this...

    It is a mischaracterization to say that we welcomed ADS-B with open arms. Quoting directly from our comments to the 2008 NPRM,

    “EAA is deeply concerned that that FAA is proposing mandatory...

    Hi Jack, and all-

    We are absolutely going to do our utmost to defend legacy/traditional model aviation from this proposed rule. The first official action we took on this NPRM was to file a request...

    Hi folks,

    As usual, FAA timelines can be frustratingly long, but an important update came across the wire just a few hours ago - the FAA finally published an NPRM to remove the E-LSA training...

    Ditto for me on the name business. At some point my family started using "Shar-PEN-tier" rather than the proper French "Shar-PON-ti-ay." I don't care how anyone pronounces it, but it's always a pain...
