Great News! Sport Pilot Leaves DOT for OMB 
Christmas came early to the aviation community when Department of Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta signed off on the sport pilot/light-sport aircraft rulemaking package and forwarded it to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) late on Tuesday, December 23.

“This is great news, as it completes an important step to make sport pilot/light-sport aircraft a reality,” said EAA President Tom Poberezny. “My compliments to FAA and DOT for their hard work in getting this important task accomplished. EAA and the aviation community have been looking forward to this important announcement as the rulemaking package enters its final phase.”

OMB now has 90 days in which to review and return the package to the FAA, at which time it would be published in the Federal Register as a final rule.

Merry Christmas from all of us at EAA!
