Proposal to expand use of driver’s license as medical

Asked by: 1479 views FAA Regulations

Got an alert from AOPA stating that Congress got tired of FAA foot dragging on the driver's license exemption proposed by AOPA/EAA.

 

They are proposing allowing use of driver's license to fly aircraft 6000 pounds and less, no more than 5 passengers, below 14,000 feet and 250 knots, VFR. non-commercial.

 

Here is a link to the bill.
