Sport Pilot Petition Drive Ends April 25
It's coming! It's coming...
Of course, it might need a little help to get here.
And that's just what the EAA wants -- your help. In less than a
week, thousands of EAA members and other aviation enthusiasts have
signed a petition to the Federal Office of Management and Budget
urging it to expedite release of the proposed sport pilot/light
sport aircraft rule when it returns from FAA in the next few weeks.
This rule is a huge step for those who are looking to overcome
personal time or financial burdens that keep them from pursuing
their aviation dreams, or for those who want a viable way to return
to the sky.
If you haven't made your voice heard, do so now! You can join
the petition drive in less than two minutes by visiting the EAA
website. This petition will go directly to the OMB as a show of
support for the opportunities available through what's commonly
known as the "sport pilot" rule.
The petition drive will end at 12:01 a.m., Central Daylight
Time, (05:01 UTC) on Sunday, April 25, so don’t delay!
Join EAA and other aviation organizations in supporting this
exciting new opportunity in aviation!
