The FAA has proposed to decommission the Burbun VOR, a facility that serves the Burlington (Wis.) Municipal Airport.
Pilots are encouraged to submit comments to the FAA on the impact of this proposal on their flight operations as provided below. The navaid was identified for decommissioning without replacement if a study shows that doing so would not be detrimental to the National Airspace System, the FAA said.
Pilots may submit comments to the FAA on the decommissioning proposal by Sept. 17 in writing. Send comments to: Federal Aviation Administration, ATO Central Service Center, Operations Support Group (AJV-C2), Nonrulemaking Case No. 13-AGL-26NR, 2601 Meacham Blvd., Fort Worth, TX 76137.
Please also share your comments with AOPA.
General aviation accident reductions in 2013 could be “a positive sign” about how pilots are approaching training, education, and proficiency.
The Flying Physicians Association (FPA) has become the latest group to lend support to third-class medical reform and urge government officials to speed up their review of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). The NPRM would expand the number of pilots who could fly without needing to obtain a third-class medical certificate, a standard that has been successfully used by sport pilots for a decade.
A survey of flying doctors found that 80 percent favor third class medical reform.
