I just received the email from AOPA and came on here to post that link..

This makes the 30+ years of AOPA dues worth the cost!

And along the same line, more fuel to the fire.

Man this is good stuff. The bill is even more aggressive than the original request.

Now all RVs are included as opposed to just those below 180 HP.
I had heard they were going to go the route of legislation and force the FAA to do something. Excellent move.

It's a good start.
Is there any logic to the no-IFR and no-above 14,000' restrictions?
