By Staff Writer | September 25, 2015

A bill to enhance U.S. pilots' legal protections has received majority support within the U.S. Senate, according to the National Business Aviation Association. The Pilot's Bill of Rights 2 (PBOR2) (S.571), proposed by U.S. Sen. James Inhofe, has received more than 60 cosponsors in the Senate, giving it a three-fifths supermajority and protecting it from a potential filibuster. Building upon the original 2012 Pilot's Bill of Rights, the new NBAA-influenced bill is meant to streamline various regulatory processes affecting GA pilots and private sector employees—in particular, providing pilots facing FAA enforcement actions with prompt information necessary for them seek proper legal counsel.
