Additional Event Information & Acknowledgement of Industry Sponsor(s):

While some increase in risk in experimental airplane flight operations might be acceptable to the GA community and the general public, in order for the recreational, educational, and experimental benefits of amateur-built airplanes to flourish, both the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and industry agree on the need for improvements in safety.  For more information about these topics, click the links below.
