Last week, ATEC announced that congressional leaders were gearing up to introduce legislation that would direct the FAA to promulgate very specific, community-drafted language in place of the current 14 CFR part 147.
The initiative stems from proposed language ATEC offered in its comments to the recent FAA part 147 supplemental notice of proposed rulemaking (SNPRM). If signed into law, provisions would require FAA deference in all matters concerning quality of education and set forth a performance-based infrastructure whereby schools would utilize emerging airman certification standards as the basis for their curriculum.
