     The comments on changes in aircraft classification correctly noted
     that some previously large aircraft have been reclassified into the
     small classification...a point which has not escaped AOPA and other
     general aviation professional organizations.  AOPA and their Air
     Safety Foundation have raised this issue with the FAA Administrator.

     Any thoughts on the merits of their case, which suggests that this
     part of the classification is a safety problem????
