Many AMA members are full-scale pilots, know someone that is a full-scale pilot, or aspire to someday become a full-scale pilot. If you fit into one of these categories, or if you’re simply an aviation enthusiast, this message is for you. AMA and the general aviation community are asking for your help.
For the last three years the EAA has been working toward medical reform for general aviation pilots. EAA has been working with Senator James Inhofe (Senator Inhofe also sponsored the Special Rule for Model Aircraft included in the 2012 FAA Modernization and Reform Act) and others to get the Pilot’s Bill of Rights 2 (PBR2) introduced in the Senate for a vote which may occur as early as Tuesday, July 28th.
Over the weekend the Air Line Pilots Association, without any supporting substantive data, came out in opposition to PBR2. You can learn more about this at: https://www.eaa.org/en/airventure/eaa-airventure-news-and-multimedia/eaa-airventure-news/2015-eaa-airventure-oshkosh/07-25-2015-eaa-fires-back-at-alpa .
Today we’re asking that our members support EAA, and our colleagues and friends that are general aviation enthusiasts in support of PBR2. You can do this by going to https://govt.eaa.org/ and clicking on the submit button. Time is short and your input is needed today.
Thanks in advance for adding your voice to this important issue.
