The general aviation community has experienced inconsistencies in the interpretation and application of regulations and policies by the FAA in a number of areas. For example, aircraft owners and operators may have experienced this when applying for supplemental type certificates or field approvals, or when undertaking major repairs. Pilots and businesses may see it when applying for operating certificates or working with different FAA offices.
An aviation rulemaking committee is working on recommendations to make regulatory interpretation more consistent and is seeking feedback from the aviation community. Data collected through the survey, spearheaded by the Consistency of Regulatory Interpretation Aviation Rulemaking Committee, will be included in the group’s recommendations to the FAA administrator at the end of the year. The survey should be completed by Sept. 25. A free webinar is being offered Sept. 7 at 11 a.m. Eastern to update the industry on the committee’s progress and provide more information about the survey.
