Aircraft owners are asked to participate in the FAA’s 34th annual general aviation Part 135 survey for 2011 data. The survey is the only source of information about the general aviation fleet and data gathered helps the FAA to determine funding for infrastructure and service needs, assess the impact of regulatory changes, and measure aviation safety.
The FAA is accepting comments until June 8 on its latest proposal to allow pilots to block their flight information from public view.
After the FAA restored full access to the Block Aircraft Registration Request (BARR) program, many general aviation pilots contacted the agency to enroll in the program, according to officials with the National Business Aviation Association, who report the FAA is on track to transmit an updated list of aircraft blocked at the “ASDI vendor level” to flight tracking vendors by today, Jan. 10. The list of aircraft blocked at the “FAA level” will also be updated. Blocking requests received by Dec. 15 should be included in the revised lists. Want to know how to enroll in the BARR program?
