+3. I don't understand the issue either.

Yes, you can remain silent. And by doing so, you create an adversarial situation. I am not suggesting that you incriminate yourself. Just answer their simple questions. If it goes beyond that, you might want to advise them you are done conversing. Trust me, the FAA will look at you in a more cooperative, and constructive light... if you are reasonable. If you play lawyer right off the bat, you will then be paying twice. Once for their lawyers and again for yours.
(you don't have anything to hide..... correct?)
I answer no questions that are not *required* to be answered, regardless of the agency (and *particularly* with police agencies). You're required to show airworthiness, registration, license, medical and photo id, and W&B. That's all I'd show, and I'd answer no questions, politely, and refuse to allow access to the interior of the plane (i.e., I don't consent to searches). You can do this politely, and still make the point that you're exercising your rights while obeying the law.

When it comes to any LE agency...they get ONLY what is required (license, passport, whatever it is), and answers ONLY to questions that are required to be answered (purpose of travel when re-entering the country, for example). I don't talk to police when I'm the subject of any investigation, even a traffic stop. I don't engage in the "where are you going? where have you been?" sorts of interaction. Nothing. And under NO circumstances do I EVER consent to a search. ((ETA: This statement doesn't make sense after it was edited by a mod...I'll rephrase) And yes, the TSA nonsense for commercial flights cheeses me off...just security theater. Another reason I LOVE my RV ).

They're not your friends, they're not there to "help you out", they're there to find a reason to detain and/or arrest you.

IANAL, but I do know that your refusal to answer questions CANNOT be used to "create" reasonable suspicion. You are exercising your Constitutional rights. They may not like it, but that's just too bad.

Default Ramp Check

I was ramp checked at The Air Force Museum in Dayton, Oh.. I was in my L-19 and the inspector walked up to my airplane and ask for the paper work. I asked him for his 110A or his badge and he didn't have one. I told him to get away from my airplane, as far as I was concerned he was a terrorist. His supervisor was about 10 ft. behind him. If you have someone with proper credentials I will show them to that inspector. ALWAYS, ALWAYS ASK FOR AN I.D. This worked out well and I bet that new inspector never forgets to show his identification.

Report him at 866/GA-SECURE. Sounds like "suspicious" activity to me.

All you need in the plane is AROW.
Airworthiness
Registration
Operating Limitations
Weight and balance

All you need as Pilot is your license.

They can ask for what they want, but you aren't required to carry them.

A couple of additional items.

Mine live in a tyvek envelope under the seat cushion.

Default Basic Med

Now that we have a Basic Med and the copy is in your logbook, I assume we don't need to keep that in the aircraft.
