Aircraft Sales and Use Tax Exemption Bill is Filed for 2016 Earlier this week, Sen. Thad Altman and Rep. Charles Van Zant both filed the Aircraft Sales and Use tax exemption bill in their respective chambers. The bill, which proposes the complete elimination of state sales tax on aircraft sales, is getting solid attention from both the House and Senate this time around. While in Tallahassee for the GA Caucus meeting, FABA and other industry leaders met with many influential members of the legislature regarding the suggested legislation. If you would like to keep up with the status of the bill, please follow HB 4039 and SB 696. With session beginning in early January 2016, things will soon begin to move very quickly with the bill. Please continue to check the Newswire for regular updates and any “Call to Actions” that may be necessary.

Support the Pilot’s Bill of Rights 2

EAA members should get involved NOW with the community’s top priority in GA advocacy. Contact your Senators and Representatives and urge them to co-sponsor and support S. 571 and H.R. 1062, the Pilot’s Bill of Rights 2. EAA helped to draft the newly introduced twin bills, and they already have bipartisan support from top lawmakers. The bill aims to allow pilots flying certain aircraft to operate using a driver’s license in lieu of a traditional third-class medical, and it will build upon the first Pilot’s Bill of Rights in ensuring that pilots and other airman are given due process in enforcement proceedings.

The medical aspects of the legislation would build upon the remarkable safety record proven by a decade of light-sport aircraft (LSA) operations. This success shows that it’s time to widen the pool of recreational pilots who can enjoy flying their small aircraft without the expense and regulatory burden of third-class medical certification.

In addition to reforming the 3rd class medical, the bill would extend important procedural rights to pilots facing FAA investigations, and protect FAA designees and volunteer pilots from liability.

EAA members have told us that reform of the 3rd class medical is the most important issue that can benefit the future of aviation. So now is your time to get involved. Send a message to your Senators and Representatives urging their support of the General Aviation Pilot Protection Act. Thank you for your support and action!
