Believe that many English ‘fly-in’ type events still require that pilots have the minimal level qualification to participate. Not sure it would go down well in the US – too many with a high sense of entitlement.

I was looking at it more from the point of view of a personal achievement metric. That is how the LSF levels are – nobody but you needs to know your LSF level. ggtronic View <abbr class='timeago' title='2012-07-13 19:33:42Z'>Friday, July 13th, 2012 01:33 pm GMT -6</abbr> fully agree ! same in Canada with MAAC… we dont even have a park pilot program yet so we are stock wtih 5 pound meat grinder rules LOL diversity is essential if our flying organisation want to recrute young & new pilot…AMA & MAAC will run to bankrupt if they dont open there mind… Carlosreplied: View <abbr class='timeago' title='2012-07-13 19:42:36Z'>Friday, July 13th, 2012 01:42 pm GMT -6</abbr> thanks Carlos View <abbr class='timeago' title='2012-07-12 18:02:40Z'>Thursday, July 12th, 2012 12:02 pm GMT -6</abbr> Thanks.
