Flight Training, Other Aviation Activities Resume in Most
9/21/01 6:00 p.m.
EAA continues its efforts with
officials throughout the federal government, supplying economic
impact information from extensive surveys developed and collected
over the past week by its affiliate, the National Association of
Flight Instructors (NAFI). This information has been steadily
supplied to federal authorities working on national airspace issues.
This economic impact material has been instrumental in the federal
effort to balance national security and opening more of the national
Through its numerous contacts within the federal
government, EAA learned this morning that federal officials were
continuing to make resumption of VFR flight training a top priority.
Preliminary details of the flight training NOTAMs were forwarded to
EAA, with full release of the NOTAMs coming late Friday, Sept.
Those provisions included:
multi-engine VFR flight training (piston engine only) is now allowed
in all airspace outside the enhanced Class B airspace areas, for
aircraft weighing no more than 12,500 pounds. The flight
training resumption includes training for non-powered aircraft, such
as balloons and gliders.
In enhanced Class B airspace (NOT
including Boston, or the Temporary Flight Restriction areas
surrounding New York City and Washington, D.C.), single- and
multi-engine flight training is allowed in aircraft (piston-engine
and rotor-driven) that weigh less than 6,000 pounds.
complete NOTAMs are available on EAA’s web site, www.eaa.org.
for-hire sightseeing operations under Part 91 FARs are also
authorized in all areas outside enhanced Class B airspace and the
flight restriction areas for New York City and the Washington, D.C.,
area. Manufacturer production flight tests are also authorized
within enhanced Class B areas, except in the Boston, New York City
and Washington, D.C., areas.
EAA continues to communicate the
importance of restoring general aviation operations to the levels
before Sept. 11. That includes VFR flying, flight training and
release of private aircraft currently “trapped” in Class B
“EAA is maintaining constant contacts with federal
officials to address remaining airspace issues throughout the
nation,” said EAA President Tom Poberezny. “Background on the
economic impact of this nationwide shutdown on the general aviation
community, especially the flight instruction community, has greatly
assisted federal authorities in their final determinations on
airspace issues thus far. EAA and NAFI will continue their vigorous
efforts on behalf of general aviation operations.”

Questions: VFR, IFR and Flight Training
Friday afternoon, much of the airspace operations in the U.S. has
been re-established. But there are still some very important
restrictions pilots need to know before taking off. View EAA's
frequently asked questions regarding VFR and IFR operations and

work to recover from the tragic events of Sept. 11.

operations have returned to much of the nation this week, the folks
at the EAA’s East Coast and Southeast Regional Fly-Ins want to let
everyone know that their events are proceeding as planned. Both are
scheduled to take place the first weekend in

Announces FAA TSO Certification For Traffic Alerting
Ryan International announced this week FAA TSO
Certification for the Active Interrogating 9900BX Traffic Alerting
System (TAS). The unit alerts the pilot to when sensing an intruder
with a calculated intercept course. The TCAD announces the traffic
alert, clock position relative to the nose of the aircraft, and
distance of the intruder: "Traffic! 12 O'clock high! Two miles" The
flight crew then has 30 seconds to Closest Point of Approach (CPA)
and determining whether evasive action is appropriate. Audible
Position Alerting gets the pilot's visual attention directed out of
the cockpit to visually assess the threat potential and initiate
appropriate action. The pilot is alerted of threat traffic, bearing
by clock position, and distance. The unit provides maximum 30-second
warning at a 1200-knot closure rate while simultaneously tracking up
to 50 aircraft monitored over 20 miles of airspace. For more

New Name For Confederate Air Force
On December 7, the new
name of the Confederate Air Force (CAF) will be announced to the
public and it will be one of four final proposed names voted on
earlier by the membership.
The four candidates are Heritage
Flying Museum; Ghost Squadron; Heritage Air Force; and Commemorative
Air Force. These are the final four of more than 1,000 submitted by
CAF members. In October 2000, those members voted by a 4-1 margin to
change the name of the organization.
Many members felt that the
current name of the organization did not reflect its primary
objectives, which are:
To restore, maintain, and fly WWII
aircraft; to maintain museum facilities for aircraft as a tribute to
the thousands of men and women who built, serviced and flew the
planes; and to perpetuate in the memory and the hearts of all
Americans the spirit in which these great planes were flown in
defense of this nation.
The 10,000-plus CAF members was formed in
1957 and operates a fleet of over 140 airplanes. Visit www.confederateairforce.org
for more information.
Q & A:
Question of the Week
Government and Industry Relations:|
At our Chapter FAA
seminar, an FAA inspector said if I buy an experimental
amateur-built aircraft, the airworthiness certificate was void and I
would need to register it as experimental exhibition. I know better,
because I read all the information on buying a homebuilt aircraft on
your web site but I can't find the reg in the FAA FAR links. Do you
know the FAR number for selling and transferring a homebuilt?
- Via e-mail
Inspector has not read his own manual. FAA Order 8130.2D clearly
states in paragraph 127g "An airworthiness certificate is
transferred with the aircraft, e.g., change of ownership, transfer
of registration, etc. There is no FAA inspection required as a
result of a transfer of an aircraft with its airworthiness
FAR 21.179 states: "An airworthiness
certificate is transferred with the aircraft."
21.181(a)(3) states: "The duration of amateur-built experimental
certificates will be unlimited."
