Support the General Aviation Pilot Protection Act

 

EAA members should get involved NOW with what you’ve told us is the most important issue in GA advocacy. Contact your Senators and Representatives and urge them to co-sponsor and support S. 2103 and H.R. 3708, the General Aviation Pilot Protection Act. The newly introduced Senate bill is a companion to the House bill of the same name, introduced in December 2013 and currently co-sponsored by a bipartisan group of 52 Representatives. The bill aims to allow pilots flying certain aircraft to operate using a driver’s license in lieu of a traditional third-class medical.

 

This legislation would build upon the remarkable safety record proven by a decade of light-sport aircraft (LSA) operations. This success shows that it’s time to widen the pool of recreational pilots who can enjoy flying their small aircraft without the expense and regulatory burden of third-class medical certification.

 

Many EAA members have told us that this is the most important issue that can benefit the future of aviation. So now is your time to get involved. Send a message to your Senators and Representatives urging their support of the General Aviation Pilot Protection Act. Thank you for your support and action!

I strongly urge my Senators and Representatives to support and vote for this long overdue legislation. Further, I solicit your effort to help win the backing of unaligned parties in government to carry this legislation to a favorable conclusion.
Eliminate the 3rd class medical. This piece of paper doesn't improve the GA accident rate.
This is a reasonable and it high time we get this unneeded government overreach backed off.
Let pilots make the decision whether their mental or physical condition warrants the safe operation of an aircraft.
In my case, I'm a private pilot with over 30 years experience. I simply wish to reduce the unnecessary expense of getting a medical and to reduce the wasted time of sitting in a waiting room for hours just because a doctor's staff booked too many patients.
General Aviation was one of this counrty's greatest assets. Please pass this legislation so it can continue.
Please help keep the grass roots of GA alive. All pilots start at the bottom and we keep the far flung airport system alive.
Please sponsor this bill, it is time to simplify the process.
