All this "FAA" stuff has all been very confusing to me. Hard for me to know "just the facts, M'am, just the facts".
SO... in recap in simple terms:
DO we control liners have to register our airplanes or not?
I never did and never will. They have yet to put in in a clear, understandable language yet, but as I understand it, things are pretty much where they are before the whole thing started. No way for the FAA to enforce it. Some one posted a reply somewhere on an incident where a quad landed on some one's property, the local law enforcement was called, the quad had a FAA register number on it, and when contacted the FAA said they had no way to trace it! Where you live out there in the mountains, you ain't worth the gas to come get you!!
Nice to hear from you!
