      A new wrinkle to the whole logging of a demonstration flight in the GA world.  We now are prohibited from logging the demonstration flight in the prospective students log book unless we have seen proof of his citizenship prior to the flight.  This is a rule that the TSA implemented October of 2004 in response to 911.  The whole paperwork issue gets even more complicated for the flight instructor if the potential student is not a US citizen.

      None...as far as the legality of what was actually being done, 
      It IS instruction.  And there is no need for the Instructor to log
      an "orientation" flight in a student log book.  It is not done in G.A.

      The prerequiste for Ultralight exempted instructors, was for the
      student to be an Org, member.  That cost was  $5 dollars and the
      application sent in to the ORG. within a set time after the flight
      took place.

      There is NO requirement for GA instructors to sign up their students
      or to keep records of all "demo" flights.
