House General Aviation Caucus Members Ask for Fast-track Review of Third-class Aeromedical Reforms

Thirty-two members of the U.S. House of Representatives General Aviation Caucus have asked the U.S. DOT to accelerate review of a FAA proposal to reform the third-class medical process. Under the proposal, the FAA would allow holders of private pilot certificates and valid driver’s licenses to fly without a third-class medical certificate. In the letter, the caucus members urged Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx to have his agency complete its review of the FAA proposal within the next 30 days. That review must be completed before the NPRM can be opened for public comment.
