FAA grants AOPA-requested knowledge-test extensionFAA grants AOPA-requested knowledge-test extension

The FAA has extended the validity period of aeronautical-knowledge test scores that expired on Sept. 30 and could not be fulfilled by flight tests when the general aviation fleet was grounded. The knowledge test score deadline was extended to Nov. 30, 2001, at the request of AOPA, giving students a chance to reschedule and practice for checkrides that were prohibited by emergency mandates on and after Sept. 11. AOPA has requested additional extensions of renewal deadlines that affect flight reviews, aircraft inspections, flight instructor certificates, and ground instructor certificates.
