A proposed new compliance pathway for Parts Manufacturer Approval for manufacturing of low risk safety-enhancing avionics and other low risk equipment emerged during a January 17 meeting in Oshkosh between EAA, top FAA officials, and aviation industry members.

This alternate approach would be based on a tiered system that provides different methods to show a compliant quality system and varied levels of oversight, based on the level of risk associated with the specific equipment being certified. A foreign pilot has been cleared of charges that he falsified an FAA medical application form, and an emergency order of revocation of his airman privileges has been reversed. His attorney says that the case is the first intentional falsification matter where the Pilot’s Bill of Rights medical reform mandates that became law in 2012 played a key role in the victory. Earlier this month, Robinson Helicopter Company delivered an R44 Cadet to the University of North Dakota. This is the first Cadet to be used in UND’s flight training program. It’s reported that UND Aerospace owns the largest civilian flight training operation in the world with three campuses and over 150 aircraft and flight training devices. The helicopter training division is located at the Grand Forks, North Dakota campus and logs over 5000 hours in helicopters annually. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
