Busted for a Handheld GPS!

GUEST EDITORIAL. If you had any doubts about why the FAA's new Form 2150-7 "ticketing" procedure is a bad idea, consider the recent case of the Florida FAA inspector who tried to ground a Cessna 182 because the pilot couldn't produce a Form 337 for its yoke-mounted handheld GPS! FAA-designated Aviation Safety Counselor (and AVweb reader) Ron Levy lays out the sorry details in a letter to Administrator Garvey. Good grief! With incidents like this one, is it any wonder that users are up in arms about the FAA's new "frontier justice" program?
