Important FAA News

Recently reported by EAA, the National Defense Authorization Act did not include a fix to limiting the ability of aircraft owners in the limited, experimental, and primary categories to receive flight training in their own aircraft.  With industry intervention on behalf of owners and instructors in these categories of aircraft, the FAA  published the option to use a Letter of Deviation Authority (LODA) on July 12. 2021. Following this recent set-back, use of a LODA will continue to be required as industry members work with the FAA for a resolution to this issue.

Click here for details on the submission requirements for a LODA and here or the FAA LODA template.
