Have you come across something that’s arcane, anachronistic or just plain useless in your travels through the regs? Well, the FAA says it wants to know about it. The agency has issued a Review of Existing Regulations that invites anyone with a beef about how the law of the air is now set to drop them a line. “Getting public comments is a necessary element of our effort to make our regulations more effective and less burdensome,” the agency claims in the document. It’s asking that you list the top three aggravations in descending order for it to consider. The FAA has to do this under Executive Order 12866 and provides a long list of efforts toward that end. "Our goal is to identify regulations that impose undue regulatory burden; are no longer necessary; or overlay, duplicate, or conflict with other Federal regulations," the document says.
