Enforcement Survival School, Part 1: Tips On Protecting Your Certificate
With so many aviation regulations, so many ways to bend or break them and so many FAA inspectors looking over a pilot's shoulder, it could be just a matter of time before you — yes, you — are involved in an enforcement action.

Most importantly, what must you avoid doing if you have any chance of making it through the FAA's enforcement process with any prayer of flying again? In Part One of a series, a former FAA inspector (Eric Jaderborg) and a practicing aviation attorney (AVweb's Phil Kolczynski) offer advanced tips on protecting your certificate, each from their own unique perspective.
