Rule Would Ease Foreign Aircraft Ops

 - February 1, 2007, 10:04 AM

A proposed rule would allow non-commercial operations of U.S.-registered aircraft owned by a company not considered a U.S. citizen to use the options of FAR 91.501 without obtaining a “foreign aircraft permit.” Under existing rules, U.S.-registered aircraft are considered foreign-owned if the management and/or board of directors of the corporation are not composed entirely of U.S. citizens. Comments to the notice are due by April 8. For further information, contact David Modesitt at (202) 366-2384.
