Forget to close a flight plan after landing? Have a barrier preventing you from getting your medical certificate? Ever receive an FAA letter of investigation? If so, you’re like the many AOPA members who discussed these topics with AOPA’s Legal Services Plan panel attorneys on July 29 at Oshkosh.
Pilots entering AOPA’s Big Yellow Tent could talk to AOPA panel attorneys and receive free legal advice based on their individual case. This was the first time AOPA has offered the service on-site.
The questions ran the gamut from homebuilt aircraft to commercial flying. Panel attorneys also fielded questions regarding the sport pilot certificate and whether that is a possible route to pursue after having been turned down for a medical.
The free legal advice was available only on July 29, but if you couldn’t make it to Oshkosh, you’ll have another chance. More panel attorneys will be available on-site at AOPA Expo in San Jose, Calif., from Nov. 6 through 8.
