As the industry digests the more than 100 changes the FAA has proposed to Part 61, some trade associations are taking positions on the more substantial changes. The National Air Transportation Association and AOPA oppose the proposed additional tasks required to remain instrument current. However, the associations feel that many of the proposed changes are positive. To date more than 50 comments have been submitted. Comments are due by May 8.
