New bill in Congress would expand driver's license medical- The "General Aviation Pilot Protection Act"

Last updated by XC Triker Comments (2)

After nearly two years of FAA inaction on the AOPA-EAA third-class medical petition, Congress has taken matters into its own hands, offering up legislation that would vastly expand the number of pilots who could fly without going through the expensive and time-consuming third-class medical certification process. Reps. Todd Rokita, R-Ind., a member of the House General Aviation Caucus, and GA Caucus Co-Chair Sam Graves, R-Mo., on Dec. 11 introduced the General Aviation Pilot Protection Act.

The General Aviation Pilot Protection Act would allow pilots to use the driver’s license medical standard for noncommercial VFR flights in aircraft weighing up to 6,000 pounds with no more than six seats. That includes virtually all single-engine airplanes with six or fewer seats, including Beech Bonanzas, as well as many light twins like the Piper Aztec, Beech Baron 55 and 58, and Cessna 310. By way of comparison, most large SUVs on the roads today weigh more than 6,000 pounds and can carry six to seven passengers, making them larger than the aircraft that would be operated with proof of a valid driver’s license under this new bill.

    This is actually great news !!  This is one of the major differences between flying a trike as a Private Pilot and as a Sport Pilot-- Keeping your medical active.  Now, IF this passes, we won't have to.  Woo Hoo!!

    I'm actually stunned that Congress is working on a second pro-aviation piece of legislation in one session--  who woulda thunk they'd not already be on vacation

    Good Stuff General Aviationwise from our Congress-- Who'd have thought those idiots (sorry- I mean that respectfully, I really do ...) would do something right?

    FAA must take action to keep aviation growing, says congressman
    In a recent speech, Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Pa., said that the Federal Aviation Administration needs to make changes that will help the U.S. aviation industry to grow and keep it competitive in a global market. He called on the agency to get an early start on its reauthorization. "We can’t afford to just stay the status quo simply because that’s the way it has been done until now," he said.

    Congress gets kudos from GA
    While a recent Gallup poll reported a drop in the approval rating of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, the current Congress is decidedly pro-general aviation, writes Flying's Stephen Pope. A number of measures to promote and protect GA have been adopted, and some 260 members have joined the House and Senate GA caucuses. "GA has never been in a stronger position politically than it is right now," Pope writes. Flying online/Fly by Wire blog (12/12)
