  1. We already do that at medical renewal time. The FAA can get that data from there since pilots have been forced to use the computer based online application system. This is just more unneeded duplication.

  2. I’m no fan of big government, but Accident rates per 100,000 hours flown are only a best-the FAA is just guessing. This information is needed.

    A better way to gather hours is to have the mechanic doing annual inspections report the hours. It’s quick, easy, and confidential.

    No need to identify the owner. Suggest aircraft total time, time since major overhaul, and hours in last year.
