AsMA Position on Third Class Medical Certification

The Aerospace Medical Association Position Letter on the FAA third class medical certification requirement for private pilots was sent to the FAA Administrator and the nearly 200 members of the Congressional General Aviation Caucus on April 10, 2014.  The letter was prepared in response to the 2012 Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association's (AOPA) and Experimental Aircraft Association's (EAA) Petition for Exemption and the recent draft legislation in the US House of Representatives (HR 3708) and US Senate (S 2103).  These efforts all recommend eliminating the third class medical certificate for private pilots flying under specific restrictions and replacing the medical certificate with a valid state driver's license and mandatory medically-related training. Information related to the AOPA/EAA Petition for Exemption can be found here.  Read the draft legislation at HR 3708 and S 2103.
