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

What say the collective intelligence?
Louise and I each sent in am email, each with the three two-seat airplanes on them (no use asking for an instructor to ride along in Tsam or Loki….).

Haven’t heard back yet, but the Reno FSDO, as nice and helpful (truly) as they are, are probably still trying to figure out their email passwords……

Default Got mine too!

I received my LODA today from the Des Moines FSDO. I requested it over the weekend. I have to give them credit. It's a stupid bureaucratic move, but the FAA wasted no time giving us what we need to stay safe.

Default Is LODA needed if giving a BFR and there is no compensation?

I’ve read the recently revised FAA policy a couple times but still not sure I understand all of it.

I’m a CFI and I have a couple friends that I give a Flight Review in their experimental aircraft and no money changes hands. Since no compensation is involved it doesn’t seem that a LODA is required for them or me.

Is that correct?

Default Disregard earlier question in previous thread

I just saw the other 13+ pages on the other Thread on same topic..Various posts seem to indicate “no compensation, no LODA”

At our EAA chapter meeting Saturday, my instructor pointed out that the FAA has ruled that flight time logged by the CFI in giving flight training is considered compensation to the instructor. And the defining regulation for a BFR refers to one hour of flight training.

First, is there a reference somewhere to this decision, in writing, by the FAA? And second...what if they don't log it? (Maybe they have a gazillion hours and just don't need 1 more hour of logged time for anything).

Default Need a description of training requested?

Do we need to send in the LODA request any kind of paragraph with a description of what kind of training we will be doing or just need to send in name, address, pilot certificate number, etc?


Anybody have a sample paragraph they sent with their accepted LODA? I am surprised that EAA did not provide a sample of what needs to be sent in.

Thumbs up

I requested my LODA via a single sentence followed up with the requested info outlined in the EAA communication. Received my LODA this morning from the Orlando FSDO who deserve kudos for their quick response…..!!

I sent the request Friday morning and received the LODA today from the MKE FSDO.[/quote]

I sent my email on Friday also, but haven't heard back from MKE FSDO as of yet. Hopefully soon. Mine should be the same as yours, as I applied as an instructor rather than for a specific airplane.
