Summit Yields Lengthy Agenda ('Hope They Dressed Warm...)

Discussions that touched on several important aspects of many different general aviation sectors took place this week at the EAA-FAA Mid-Winter 2006 Recreational Aviation Summit held Wednesday and Thursday at the EAA Aviation Center in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Items discussed during the two days included amateur-built aircraft; sport pilot/light-sport aircraft; warbirds; vintage/aging aircraft; and Canadian harmonization issues.

"I've been meeting with FAA people for several decades," noted EAA President Tom Poberezny.

"This two-day summit has been one of the best if not the best sessions I've ever been involved with. We've really set our agenda as to where EAA will focus its resources for the coming year and beyond."

Jim Ballough, Director of Flight Standards, said, "This week was important and beneficial not only for the FAA and EAA, but for the flying public as well. We have a lot of worthy initiatives under way as a result."

The recreational aviation summit builds on EAA's longtime spirit of finding solutions to aviation issues and forging constructive working relationships with government, industry and aviation users.
