New additions to the ASA Reader App include the recent Federal Register release of Registration and Marking Requirements for Small Unmanned Aircraft, and several Guides to Initial Pilot Checkout from the American Bonanza Society’s Beechcraft Pilot Proficiency Program.
The new 14 CFR Part 48, Registration and Marking Requirements for Small Unmanned Aircraft, which became effective Dec. 21, 2015, provides a web-based process for the registration of small unmanned aircraft, including those operated as model aircraft.
Anyone operating an unmanned aircraft for recreational purposes should read this document to ensure compliance and avoid potential penalties.
The American Bonanza Society has created a series of training outlines for pilots and their instructors to address the most vital topics and operations during the critical initial checkout for a variety of models. These Guides to Initial Pilot Checkout outline and highlight the manuals for pilots and instructors, to help them identify the basics until the pilot can complete type-specific training with a Beech-knowledgeable flight instructor.
