Sometimes The Government Actually Tries to Help...
The FAA is replacing an existing
Special Federal Aviation Regulation (SFAR) to allow FSDOs to
accept expired flight instructor certificates and inspection
authorizations for renewals from individuals assigned outside the
United States in support of U.S. Armed Forces operations.
The new SFAR (SFAR No. 100) also allows FSDOs to accept expired
airman written test reports for certain practical tests for
similarly situated individuals. The change will help avoid
penalizing personnel who are unable to meet the regulatory time
limits of their flight instructor certificate, inspection
authorization, or airman written test report.
SFAR No. 100 is effective June 20, 2003-June 20, 2005. The FAA
seeks public comments on the final rule no later than July 21,
Mail comments to the Public Docket Office, Department of
Transportation, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Room PL-401, Washington,
