Hmm...very interesting. Glad to see there is 'some' sort of laws and limitations. But like those have ever truly stopped someone...Chris98GT said:You can fly it pretty much like any other aircraft, but you have additional regulations you have to adhere strictly too or risk complete revokation of both the air certificate and your license.
Basically, you can only fly (without advance notice to the FAA) within 600 miles of your home airfield. You can only do this for maintainence or training reasons (i.e. round trip...no flying to Shreveport for the day and flying back).
If you want to do something like that, you have to file a flight plan with the FAA WAY in advance and you get to meet some major limitations such as strict altitude adherence (+/- 1000 ft) and a pretty severe speed limit.
Given that it's illegal to break the sound barrier over US soil, the only place to really do go flying like a nutcase is over inernational waters. So unless you live on the coast it's going to be a museum exhibit.
Trust me, the FAA is worse than the IRS when it comes to fucking with people. The last thing any pilot wants to see is a representative of the FAA coming to talk to them about a "situation". They'll pull your license for a year for the most mionor violation while they "review" the situation.DfwSHO said:Hmm...very interesting. Glad to see there is 'some' sort of laws and limitations.
