Long time reader, never posted before. I saw this on another message board – after reading it I am really excited and had to post it! I attached the file to this post, hopefully it works.
Evidently there is an FAA group rewriting the small aircraft laws. Looks like there has been a proposal made to allow people to maintain their own airplanes. The jist of it is that if you have an airplane that could be considered “noncommercial use” you could treat just as if it were a homebuilt.
The cost savings on this would be HUGE!!!!
I am not sure who made this suggestion, but it seems to go right along with the medical idea EAA is working. If this is EAA, I really applaud them – between the medical issues and this someone is finally working to make things better in the GA world. Great Job EAA!!!!!!!!!! (or whomever is doing this!!!)
