File Size 9.8 MB / Running Time 10:41
If you've been hearing rumors that the FAA may soon change medical requirements for many pilots, chances have never been better that those rumors are true. AVweb's Glenn Pew spoke with EAA vice president of industry and regulatory affairs Sean Elliot to see what dates and details had already been laid out in a plan, what pilots might expect, when they might expect it, and what compromises might come. It would not be wise to hold your breath, but this cooperative effort is well organized and backed by recent real-world statistics on the safety of flight operations without an FAA medical check. Listen to this podcast for details of the effort as it stands now.
