Aviation Regulation

Aviation Up In Arms Over Proposed FAA Rule Changes

Under new FAA rules, general aviation is about to undergo massive changes, none for the good, apparently. The FAA Airports Division issued a revised FAA Order 5190.6B, Airport Compliance Manual recently, that, as EAA described it, caught “just about every one off guard.” Not only that it went from 94 to 691 pages of new rules and regulations, and it makes major changes that will affect several aspects of general aviation.

Editors Note: Is this complete over-reaction by the FAA a result of the FAA running scared from TSA and its unwarranted and excessive general aviation proposals?
