DETROIT -- Plans are under way for a Tuskegee Airmen museum at Coleman A. Young International Airport, a surviving member of the all-black fighter group said Friday.
A renovated, 35,000-square-foot hangar at the Detroit airport will house the new, national museum, said museum fundraising coordinator and retired U.S. Air Force Major Gen. Lucius Theus. Once completed, it will feature memorabilia and full-scale models of fighter planes and bombers flown by the legendary World War II pilots, he said.
If you're conducting sightseeing flights, there are some new rules in effect, whether you're flying for charity or profit.
Some flight schools, for example, give sightseeing rides under the Part 91 25-mile exception. Any operator conducting those kinds of flights must now apply for a "Letter of Authorization" from the FAA and show proof that they have an FAA-approved anti-drug and alcohol misuse and prevention program. A recent decision from the Office of Management and Budget allows the FAA to start collecting that information as is required under the "National Air Tour Safety Standards" rule. The FAA originally wanted to make all sightseeing operations fall under Part 135 charter rules, but AOPA successfully opposed that.
