Great video.  I love the 650.  You guys do a great job.  Hurt my knee and can't make Oshkosh, but I'm planning on the September open hangar day.

Great way to share news and promote the canopy blind!  Looking forward to Osh and the Anniversery events in September!

Third-Class Medical Reform for Pilots is Now Law!


Third-Class Medical Reform Now Law!

President signs FAA funding bill that includes aeromedical reform

July 15, 2016 – A huge number of EAA members and other aviators will now be free from many of the expenses and hassles of the current FAA medical certification system under legislation signed today by President Obama that reforms that system. The provision was included in an FAA funding extension that replaces a short-term funding measure that expired today.

“It’s important to celebrate this moment, which has been a long time coming and resulted from an incredible amount of work over the past five years,” said Jack J. Pelton, EAA CEO/Chairman. “EAA was a leader in getting this done because it was the right thing to do for members, working in cooperation with fellow aviation organizations, congressional leaders, and others to persistently pursue this path against many challenges. This win is for everyone who loves recreational flight.”

Details of the new provision, its timeline, and what it means for pilots are outlined in EAA’s Frequently Asked Questions sheeton third-class medical reform. More information about it will also be available at the Member Welcome Center during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016, which begins on July 25. EAA’s advocacy and membership teams will also be talking with members to review any specific language of the bill that is expected to be signed into law this week, and what it means for individual members.

Also, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Oklahoma), a longtime pilot and EAA member who authored the Pilot’s Bill of Rights 2 that contained the medical reform language, will also be in Oshkosh to discuss the new law. Sen. Inhofe will speak on Saturday, July 30 at 10 a.m. in Forum Pavilion 1. Reps. Sam Graves (R-Missouri) and Todd Rokita (R-Indiana), who led the effort in the House, are also expected to attend AirVenture. Read more
