The FAA has extended the comment period for a proposed exemption to the third-class medical certification requirement for pilots flying recreationally to September 14. The agency received more than 14,000 comments during the initial 20-day comment period, and the vast majority of the comments supported the proposal. According to the EAA, “The exemption request would allow pilots who fly recreationally to operate many popular GA aircraft by completing an online medical awareness course, carrying a valid state driver’s license, and observing certain operating limitations.”
