OSH Preview: Sport Pilot Rules Approval Expected Soon

AvWeb is reporting that the approval of the new Sport Pilot/Lightplane rules may come very soon. If this happens it will be one of the big stories, maybe the biggest, at the upcoming fly-in. AvWeb:

After a decade or so in the works (and an extended stay at the Office of Management and Budget) the highly anticipated Sport Pilot/Light Sport Aircraft final rule may (very, very soon) be ready for prime time -- we'll let the real world be the judge. Ron Wagner of EAA told AVweb on Tuesday that EAA is "very optimistic that we will have a pre-Oshkosh rule ... it's imminent."
