Through the Legal Services Plan, we review agreements for aircraft rental, hangar rental, aircraft tiedowns, etc. It seems to me in recent years, these agreements include releases more frequently.
I remember overhearing discussions some 30 years ago between individuals about signing such a release agreement. In essence, the advice was to “sign it and don’t worry about it because it will never hold up in court.” The point of this note is to report that the law is changing, and more than ever these releases are being enforced.

Steven Moore, executive director of the National Gay Pilots Association, died Oct. 27 when his Mooney crashed after takeoff at Boulder Municipal Airport in Denver.
AOPA’s message that the cost to equip is too high and must drop substantially was heard loud and clear at a “call to action” summit on ADS-B.
Premier aerobatic pilot and GA supporter Sean D. Tucker will be honored at the Spreading Wings Gala at the Wings Over the Rockies Museum in Denver Nov. 15.
