AOPA Live This Week

AOPA Live This Week - August 15, 2013

The FAA has proposed a sweeping airworthiness directive (AD) requiring the removal and inspection of thousands of after-market cylinders installed in Continental aircraft engines. AOPA is fighting the proposal, noting enormous cost and compromised safety. AOPA Live This Week® used the Freedom of Information Act to gain an exclusive inside look at a recent general aviation aircraft search ordered by federal officials for reasons that remain mysterious. Also this week, Rod Machado gets back into spins, and how to stop them before they start, in his License to Learn segment, and producer Paul Harrop scopes out glasses that can protect the eyesight of pilots targeted by lasers, an increasingly common event.
