HAI: FAA Playing Scrooge With CFI Renewals

Due to the scheduling of HELI-EXPO ’04 in March 2004, CFIs who last renewed their certificates at HELI-EXPO in February 2002, are facing the possibility that their certificates might expire on February 29, 2004. According to 14 CFR 61.197(b)(2), CFI certificates expire on the last day of the month two years after they are last renewed. There are no regulatory provisions that provide for either a waiver or a grace period to this date. Taking the only option available to seek relief for the CFI’s thus affected, HAI submitted a petition to the FAA to grant an exemption to Part 61.197(b)(2) by allowing an extension to March 31, 2004.

FAA Moves Forward With FSS Study

The FAA has formally announced that it will conduct a public-private competition to determine the best way to run automated flight service station (AFSS) services. Because FSS services are so important to general aviation pilots, when the agency originally announced plans for the study, AOPA staff successfully argued the association should have the opportunity to participate in the study to ensure that the process accurately reflects the needs of users. Aviation weather services are a critical safety function that must be provided by the government without fees to pilots, and AOPA would vigorously fight any action that would take that responsibility away from the government or 'privatize' FSS functions.
