Sport Pilot Rule Passes Final Hurdle

According to EAA.com, the Sport Pilot Rule has cleared its final government hurdle, and will be published in the Federal Register in a few days.

July 16, 2004 - A bright new age of aviation participation is ready to unfold, capping a decade of effort by the Experimental Aircraft Association and the aviation community, as the highly anticipated sport pilot/light-sport aircraft rule has cleared its last governmental hurdle. The White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released the rule today to the Federal Aviation Administration, the last of many federal approvals that were necessary before this major rule could be published.


The regulation, commonly known as the "sport pilot rule," is now ready for publication in the Federal Register within several days.
