I was not present when the Feds graced us with their presents, but by all accounts we were on our best behavior. Oh well, we are always on our best behavior.

Well this is why I did the sign up on the first day. If there is one thing I know about bureaucrats when they seize power they never give it up. Not ever!

I own the Pitts Special and love it. I have zero complaints about the plane or the stabilization hardware. By now I have close to a hundred flights and it is still going strong.

No, there was nothing like that. Just pay the $5.00 and they give the code to put on the planes, drones and whatever else comes under the new rules. They really don't care how many aircraft we have.
