FAA Makes More Sport Pilot Data Available

The FAA's Martin Weaver tells ANN that, "We have added two documents to the Sport Pilot Documents page of the Light Sport Aviation (AFS-610) web site.

The first document is a powerpoint presentation that outlines Sport Pilot Flight Instructor Duties and Responsibilities. This presentation can be used to help explain to flight instructors who want to get involved with sport pilot training what specific regulations they need to review in order to comply with the new regulations.

The second document is an aid for flight instructors conducting proficiency checks under 14 CFR 61.321 and 61.419. It is titled Proficiency Check Procedures for Obtaining Additional Category/Class Sport Pilot Privileges. It is very important for flight instructors to follow the procedures outlined in order to ensure that the proper paperwork is completed in a timely manner and that it is accurate. Under the provisions of 14 CFR 61.413(i) and 61.423(b) flight instructors assume a greater responsibility in FAA certification.

We hope both of these documents will help the industry and organizations get the word out to the flight instructors to ensure the sport pilot program is successful."
