Commercial Regs for VLJs
While the Government Accountability Office joined the rest of aviation pundits in saying the role of Very Light Jets in the National Airspace System is uncertain, the biggest news indicated that the FAA is working on new rules that would allow this new breed of aircraft to be used by scheduled airlines.

Efforts to find out what the agency is proposing did not come by press time. For a complete analysis see the next issue of Regional Aviation News.
