FAA GA Division Manager to Present at NTSB Safety Seminar Nov. 8 On Saturday, November 8, 2014, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will host a free safety seminar for pilots and mechanics on technically advanced aircraft (TAA) and the challenges of transitioning to glass-cockpit technology. An NTSB safety study completed in 2010 concluded that glass cockpit aircraft experienced a lower total accident rate, but a higher fatal accident rate, than the same type of aircraft equipped with conventional analog instrumentation.   The four-hour event, held at the NTSB’s training center in Ashburn, Virginia, will explore some of the causes of TAA accidents, the current government and industry efforts to prevent them, and the resources available to the pilot community. Joining NTSB Board Member Earl Weener as a featured presenter will be the FAA’s own Jim Viola, manager of the General Aviation and Commercial Divi...

Hangar Use! Per FAA Under Federal law, airport operators that have accepted federal grants and/or those that have obligations contained in property deeds for property transferred under various Federal laws such as the Surplus Property Act generally may use airport property only for aviation-related purposes unless otherwise approved by the FAA. Compliance inspections by FAA staff, as well as audits by the Government Accountability Office, have found that some hangars intended for aircraft storage are routinely used to store non-aeronautical items such as vehicles and large household items. In some cases, this storage interferes with—or entirely displaces—aeronautical use of the hangar. Moreover, many airports have a waiting list for hangar space, and a tenant's use of a hangar for non-aeronautical purposes prevents aircraft owners from obtaining access to hangar storage on the airport. At the same time, the FAA realizes...
