I used the email provided in the EAA article with the requested info, copy below.

"Under the new LODA system, applicants can send an email to 9-AVS-AFG-LODA@faa.gov with their name, address, email address, pilot certificate number, flight instructor number (if applying as a CFI), aircraft registration number (if applying as an owner), aircraft make and model, and aircraft home base (if applying as an owner)."

My main concern regarding this new system is highlighted in the bold quotation. We need more concrete rules and regulations from the FAA instead of arbitrary rules that will and can be revoked at whim, or after a local FSDO failed to perform its duty as in the Florida case. On the plus side, it seems the local FSDOs have received guidance from the FAA and to expedite the new temporary LODA process.

I also used the email address noted above for my request and provided the requested information. In my case I specifically called out BFR and transition training.

The feds have never, to my knowledge, approved that. Keep us posted on what they say!

Is anyone using a standard boilerplate e-mail? I will probably need this for my IFR training now in the 6A.

Here is the specific text of my email to 9-AVS-AFG-LODA@faa.gov:

"I would like LODA to receive instruction (BFR, etc) in my experimental RV-6A. Here is my info:"

I misread that you wanted to give others a BFR in your plane.

Default Question

Is the LODA for the plane, or the pilot?

Laura and I are both pilots, and will be getting our BFRs in our EAB.

The application email includes my info, as well as the aircraft info-----so how is the LODA applied?

I am thinking Laura should apply also, just to be sure all bases are covered.

What say the collective intelligence?

Well, I'm kinda short on this part but,

I sent the request Friday morning and received the LODA today from the MKE FISDO.

This LODA doesn't reference my plane at all. Only has my name and says I'm able to provide or receive training in any Experimental I'm legally flying, also says I can recieve or provide compensation for training but cannot pay for or charge for the aircraft.

FYI I'm a CFI
