Time is Short to Comment on FAA Proposal for Pilot Reporting Requirements

June 22, 2020

Time is running short for industry stakeholders to comment on proposed changes to pilot-reporting requirements affecting a large segment of the Part 91 community, and many NBAA members. The FAA introduced the 200-page Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and has resisted calls from NBAA and others to extend the comment period in consideration of the ongoing crisis. “This is really regulatory overreach at its worst,” said Doug Carr, NBAA’s vice president for regulatory and international affairs. “We have a situation where our community will see no safety benefits as a result of compliance with this program, and the creation of a definition solely for the purpose of satisfying paperwork is not in the best interest of our community.”

In this episode of NBAA Flight Plan, host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Doug Carr, NBAA Vice President for Regulatory and International Affairs
  • Brian Koester, CAM, NBAA Director of Flight Operations and Regulations
  • Jason Herman, CAM, chair of the NBAA Domestic Operations Committee
