Airborne-Flight Training 02.16.23: Ray Scholarships, LODA Update, GV Curricula

Also: Pilot Standards, Canadian Helo Pilots, Charles McGee Award, NAFI Conference

The EAA Ray Aviation Scholarship minted its 300th pilot this month, helping to inaugurate the newest class of aviators under the program.

The scholarship is funded by the Ray Foundation and managed by the EAA, allowing them to disseminate the process of finding and selecting worthy candidates throughout chapters all over the country. Candidates receive up to $11,000 for their flight training expenses, coming from $1.8 million entrusted to the Foundation for 2023. The FAA published a Notice of Policy in the Federal Register confirming that it would no longer require letters of deviation authority (LODAs) for most flight training in experimental aircraft—including instances in which the training aircraft’s use is provided in the absence of compensation. The Federal Aviation Administration has published a first for an aircraft-specific training curriculum, releasing a standardized syllabus for the Gulfstream GV. The change marks a jump forward for training standards among Part 135 operators, providing concrete standards that help to provide a trustworthy base of knowledge for a popular business jet. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
