ABS ASF Signs Letter Regarding Third Class Medical NPRM
« on: October 17, 2014, 11:39:33 AM »
The ABS Air Safety Foundation is first to sign a letter to be sent by EAA's Type Club Coalition (http://www.eaa.org/en/eaa/aviation-communities-and-interests/pilot-resources/type-club-coalition) calling for the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to expedite its internal review of the FAA's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to change the third class medical requirement for pilots not engaged in commercial operations.  Although ABS will withhold judgment on supporting the NPRM until its provisions are made public, we support expediting the process so that members have the opportunity to read and evaluate the actual proposal. The ABS Board will then solicit member input and decide how to respond to the NPRM.
