I definitely am not advocating eliminating rules for P2 pilots.  My basic recommendation is to allow P2 pilots to fly everything up to Marshall before 10 am and after 6 pm in the summer months without instructor supervision or instructor clearance.  To address the requirement of seeing the LZ from launch, at Marshall they can launch down near the HG launch where the LZ can be seen.  Their P2 should allow them to do that with nothing further required.  Appropriate hours should be determined for such flights in non summer months.  Allow them to get the airtime they need to become better pilots.
