On Thursday, July 28, the IAC was notified by FAA in Washington of the publication of FAA policy N 8900.372 which extends a long-term Aerobatic Practice Area (LT APA) from 24 months to 36 months. This is very good news and is the result of the work of our Government Relations Committee and in particular Bill Finagin and Wayne Roberts. Sue Gardner, FAA’s national airshow coordinator, provided the document to to the IAC on Thursday.
A copy of N8900_372 LT APA 36 month is attached below. Many thanks to Bill and Wayne for their excellent work on our behalf. During the IAC annual membership meeting, FAA inspector Larry Wells of the FSDO in Jackson, MS presented the first 3-year APA waiver document to Wayne Roberts for his APA in Grenada, MS.
