FAA Aims to Modernize AMT Training
On October 2, 2015, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend the regulations governing the curriculum and operations of FAA-certificated Aviation Maintenance Technician Schools. After analyzing the comments, the FAA agrees with expanding the scope of the proposal. In a supplemental NPRM posted on April 16, the FAA is proposing to allow the option of competency-based training and satellite training locations. Additionally, the FAA is proposing to amend the quality of instruction requirements by replacing the national passing norms with a standard pass rate. For more details on these proposals, see the SNPRM at https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2019/04/16/2019-06399/aviation-maintenance-technician-schools. You may submit comments on or before June 17, 2019.

The FAA is offering $500 rebates to owners of fixed-wing, single-engine piston aircraft with the purchase of avionics that have received an ADS-B Technical Standard Order authorization and meet ADS-B Out requirements. The program ends 10/11/19 or when all rebates have been claimed. For step-by-step instructions on how to reserve, validate, and claim your ADS-B rebate, read the FAA Safety Briefing article “Show Me the $$” at: http://bit.ly/adsbrebate.
