Been reading and learning from this site for a while but it is time to post. I filed our 333 petition last night and have a few questions about the PIC. I understand that the PIC, currently, must hold at least a sport pilot cert. I do however find it hard to believe that of all the 333 exemptions/petitions I have read that they are all going to actually go out and get a pilot cert. Joe and Joe Blows Construction or Mary and Mary's Wedding Photography is likely not getting certified.......or are they? What is the true consensus on what folks are doing to comply with the PIC requirement? Does everyone that posts they have a 333 exemption also hold a pilot cert? If so, I am honestly impressed and what did you all do to get a cert i.e.. Balloon, Powered Chute, Aircraft..... Any insight into this PIC issue would be great. On a side note, this whole process is a complete disaster and is almost comical.
