Wow, that is great news. I remember in reply to one of my posts that you said yours took 11 months. I too will need to go through the FAA, hopefully mine will only take the 2 months that the article says will be typical now. By the way, not to be nosy or anything, what did you need special issuance for. You can PM me about that if you want. My reasoning is a radical Mastoidectomy surgery (ear). Way cool news though!
