Part 135 and 91K operators may be eligible for a temporary exemption from certain requirements of the FAA’s Pilot Records Database program, after NBAA raised concerns with the agency that the database’s electronic transmission function isn’t expected to be fully operational until later this year. “This exemption is limited to members of NBAA,” notes Jason Maddux, vice chair of NBAA’s Regulatory Issues Advisory Group. “Members that want to take advantage of the exemption must file a letter of intent in the docket (FAA-2022-0795).”
In this special edition of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
Brian Koester, CAM, NBAA director, flight operations and regulations
Jason Maddux, principal, Garofalo Goerlich Hainbach PC and vice chair, NBAA Regulatory Issues Advisory Group (RIAG)
The FAA has been working with NBAA and others to address privacy concerns with the Privacy ICAO Address program (PIA), which recently was expanded beyond the contiguous U.S. to include overwater routes.
Flight data monitoring and data sharing are important tools to help identify potential safety risks before they become serious issues. That said, many operators are uncertain about how they work, what equipment is needed and what this information can offer their operations. NBAA has developed a new, comprehensive resource to answer those and other questions.
In this special edition of NBAA Flight Plan, podcast host Rob Finfrock gets a few moments in between conference sessions with NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen to discuss the latest efforts by the association to highlight business aviation's societal benefits.
NBAA, with input from its Emerging Technologies Committee, Access Committee and Advanced Air Mobility Roundtable, recently joined with other industry partners to declare there are good reasons for the FAA not to use the term advanced air mobility in the agency's proposed revised definition of aeronautical activity.
