Don’t Give Up the Fight
Your editorial column in the Jan/Feb issue was the first column I have read from you that I had an overwhelming feeling of disappointment. I’m in my 36th year of being
actively engaged in aviation, and I agree with you fully about the “advanced certification” feeling I have for my IA. I am also one of the 83 individuals who have commented to the FAA on NPRM 2010-1060.
My disappointment lies in the feeling that you have given up the fight already.
I am 57 years old, college educated, Master Training Specialist certified, etc….etc….etc, and don’t need another certification (government or civil) program to become “engaged.” I have an IA that I worked and trained very hard for, to be “engaged.”
If the FAA wants to get rid of the “800 pound gorilla” use attrition, not removal, for the Inspection Authorization.
