SAFE’s David St. George Qualifies The Organization’s Thinking On This Controversy A recent court decision has upheld the FAA’s questionable “cease and desist” order against “Warbird Adventures.” This ruling lets stand an interpretation that threatens the historic role of CFIs as “educators” and will have a negative effect on all flight training (and aviation safety). This action has left CFIs confused and at risk from the greater future liability of “flying for hire,” along with potential regulatory and medical consequences.
