This week it was officially stated that a new FAA Letter of Deviation Authority (LODA) for Starfighters Aerospace in Florida now permits the company to provide F-104 flight training for licensed pilots who meet certain qualifications. The training and flight operations are conducted at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Space Shuttle Landing Facility.
We hope this gives more momentum to this wonderful and unique company in Florida.
