There seems to be a growing interest by the DPEs to get involved with the program. The next Sport Pilot Examiner initial course will be held in Sebring, FL starting March 21, 2005. Eight candidates have been sent letters asking them to participate. As soon as I am notified that they have committed to the course I will make the attendee list public. - Martin Weaver
