Welcome to the May Issue of The BAC Bulletin & DA News!
In this issue, we remind you of the FAA’s Re-registration requirement and give you information on how you can complete the process as easily as possible. Now that we’re into the Spring flying season, we also provide you a check list review of airfield safety and FAA rules.
