Aircraft owners should know by now that the FAA has largely done away with aircraft registration certificates that have no expiration date on their face. Registration certificates will now expire three years after issuance. This should prompt a change in our pre-flight inspection procedures to ensure compliance with the law on each and every flight.

The movement to exempt thousands of general aviation pilots from the third class medical certification process is gaining momentum in Congress and the aviation community.
A new report from the Government Accountability Office has revealed problems with the FAA medical certification process, including delays, technological issues, and lack of clarity.
The Michigan Aeronautics Commission is asking the FAA and the state’s congressional delegation to support legislation that would let more pilots fly without medical certification.
