    I think Steve Graham did a good job summing up my objections to BV's letter.

    While I have the utmost respect for Bob, I think he is well off the mark on this subject.

    I agree with what you are saying, but it is not applicable here, as we are not commenting on an NPRM. The call for comments is for the FAA letter of interpretation.

    Simply repeating what an FAA person told the gentleman who works with him. I have a feeling it will work eventually work out that way. Agreed, we will have to see how it shakes out, but worth...

    In this case, we are not talking about airspace, which I am familair with. We are talking about airports....a lot of similarities and overlap, but some differences as well. The FAA interpretaion...

    The counter on the FAA comment pages took a nice jump over the weekend to around 23,000 comments. Looks like the FAA was far, far behind in processing them.

    It is my understanding that Part 103 specifically exempts ultralights from Part 91, as long as you follow what is stated in Part 103.

    If you are not in compliance with Part 103, then you lose the...

    The AMA email showed up today, but was lacking any details about what the FAA said in their meeting. The email sends you to this new posting in the Gov Realtions part of AMA what gives a simplified...

    Over 3200, now.

    Not nearly enough, even though the comments are unlikely to change anything. We still need to express ourselves and get on the record.

    This will get litigated at some point and...

    Hoss, we will have to agree to disagree on the subject of notification vs. permission from airports and ATCs. If 336 wanted us to get "permission", that word would be in the law instead of "notify"....

    It does not matter if they read about it in here or not. It is a valid option that could be explored.
