The FAA has released Form 8710-11, the Airman Certification and/or Rating Application - Sport Pilot. The form is available in the links section on AOPA's Sport Pilot page. Examiners and instructors should use this form when performing sport pilot certification and ensure that it is accurate before sending it to Airman Records (AFS-760).
By the end of February, 104 airman, instructor, and examiner sport pilot knowledge tests had been administered. And a total 52 sport pilot airman exams were given without any failures.
The FAA also has updated its list of sport pilot designated examiners. You can search for an examiner on the Light Sport Aviation Branch Web site.
