07/16/04 - EXPERTS/ENTHUSIASTS PREPARE TO CONVERGE ON OSHKOSH

Before OMB's approval and return of the long-awaited sport pilot/light-sport aircraft (SP/LSA) rule to FAA, EAA had arranged a wide variety of sport pilot activities for the fast-approaching EAA AirVenture Oshkosh convention and fly-in. With today's big news, AirVenture's theme, “Launching the Next Century of Flight,” takes on even more meaning, as the convention becomes Sport Pilot Central July 27-August 2. For those who want to learn more about SP/LSA, there's really only one place to be: EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.

More than 20 specific events (forums, presentations, special appearances) are listed on the EAA AirVenture website covering subjects ranging from the new pilot certificate, the light-sport aircraft category, transitioning from other aircraft and pilot certificates, maintenance, medical certification, and more. EAA’s Sport Pilot Center, located in the EAA Member Village, will serve as SP/LSA’s nerve center. EAA aircraft and pilot certification experts, as well as representatives from the FAA’s National Sport Pilot Office in Oklahoma City, and others, will be standing by with a wealth of information regarding the new rule. Representative light-sport aircraft will also be on display there throughout the convention.

FAA Administrator Marion Blakey heads a large contingent of FAA officials coming to Oshkosh this year. She will be on convention grounds Thursday and Friday, July 29-30. Administrator Blakey’s visit to Oshkosh is highlighted by the annual “Meet the Administrator” session, scheduled for Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at the Honda Motorcycles Pavilion.
