Got a call the other day, a gentleman requesting my MIDO contacts. For those of you who aren't in the know, the are a few inspirational stories addressing the mystique of an apparently unusually kind and supportive relationship I enjoy with the FAA. To wit, in all three cases of bent rotors and tubing they have been most kind, forgiving and forgetful. In the event I get called out for overflying taxiing aircraft by 3rd party, mean-spirited, FWer's, they agree with me. When I asked for a Sport Pilot Practical test, the guy told me I did THE best simulated engine out spot landings he had ever witnessed and had the pleasure to experience - bar none. When I asked for inspection/certification, I called and they showed up at 8:00 am the following day.
I share here the contacts I made at the ATL MIDO for airworthiness certification while I was based in Carrollton CTJ.
