Just a quick note on something I thought was incorrect in the AVweb newsletter. The article says "Seattle-based." They are now headquartered in Chicago, Ill., as of a couple years ago. Love the newsletter; keep up the great job, I love seeing it in my mail box.
FAA Wings Program
Why has there been no mention of the very succesful FAA Wings Program? Once a year, three-hour training flight with a CFI or CFII, plus attendance at a FAA Flight seminar that year. Takes perference over the two year biennial recurrency training.
I believe that the slow prosses of the sport aircraft regulation has the FAA concerned about controlling the thousands of aircraft in the sky with much less building control than certifield aircraft. Seems like EAA has FAA in a corner due to a very popular regulation.
