FAA Take 2: Gliders Can "Feather"
The official description simply removes the word "auto" from the term "autofeathering". It's more of a semantic rather than practical change, updated to reflect actual hardware modes already out there.
In effect, the amendment embraces both manual and autofeathering ops for powered LSA gliders.
Anyone who wants to comment can go to the link above until Feb. 2, 2011. The final rule becomes official on March 4, 2011.
