The FAA is proposing to amend airman medical standards so that refusing to submit to a required drug or alcohol test carries the same penalty as failing a test–revocation of an airman medical certificate. The same penalty awaits a pilot with an alcohol test result of 0.04 or greater. Comments on the proposal are due March 14. For more information, call the FAA at (202) 267-8693.
