New LODA Page Facilitates Easier Transition Training For Experimentals

List Of CFIs Authorized For Instruction In Their Particular Aircraft Type

The EAA has debuted an online listing of Letter of Deviation Authority (LODA) holders for instruction in experimental aircraft. The list, categorized geographically by state, includes certificated flight instructors who are authorized by the FAA to offer certain types of instruction for hire in their experimental aircraft for the purposes of type-specific training. FARs otherwise prohibit flight instructors from receiving compensation for the operating costs of an experimental aircraft.

The list of LODA-holding instructors makes finding transition training easier for builders and new owners of experimental aircraft. Using an E-AB LODA instructor allows pilots to become familiar flying a similar aircraft to their own (during Phase 1 testing or at any point thereafter). Proper transition training is an essential first step toward safe operation of experimental aircraft and a key element in the continuing effort to improve aviation safety.
 
Publication of this list was one of four safety recommendations made by the NTSB directly to EAA in its study of amateur-built safety earlier this year. The other three recommendations, which tie directly into EAA's longstanding efforts to support the homebuilding community, include:

  • Create a Type Club Coalition that includes kit manufacturers, type clubs, and pilot and owner groups (nearly completed - website to be live next week).
  • Develop transition training resources and identify and apply incentives to encourage both builders of experimental amateur-built aircraft and purchasers of Identify and apply incentives to encourage owners, builders, and pilots of E-AB aircraft to complete flight test training prior to conducting flight tests of E-AB aircraft. (Not completed but significant progress made).
  • Work with the EAA membership, aircraft kit manufacturers, and avionics manufacturers to develop standards for the recording of data in electronic flight displays, engine instruments, or other recording devices to be used in support of flight tests or continued airworthiness of E-AB aircraft. (Not completed but significant progress made).
