If you require a special issuance medical, there’s a good chance Dr. Warren Silberman, manager of the FAA’s aerospace medical certification division in Oklahoma City, Okla., will be involved at some level. To thank Silberman for his hard work in ensuring that medically qualified pilots get their medical certificates and his dedication to aviation safety, AOPA presented him with a citation Dec. 2.
Not only does Silberman work for pilots day in and day out, he even makes special trips to help pilots complete the certification process. Silberman recently attended AOPA Expo, giving pilots requiring special issuance medicals the opportunity to submit their paperwork for review in advance of the show and, in some cases, issuing long-awaited medicals on the spot.
While AOPA staff members were in Oklahoma City to honor Silberman, they took the opportunity to address other issues of interest to pilots, including a proposal that would require re-registration of all aircraft in the general aviation fleet.
For decades, pilots have headed to Bay Bridge Airport in the Chesapeake Bay for scenic coastal flying and great seafood. Check it out after attending the AOPA Homecoming Fly-In on Oct. 4.
A state-of-the art medical facility on remote Tangier Island in the Chesapeake Bay serves as a lasting memorial to the late Dr. David B. Nichols’ dedication to providing medical care to the community for 30 years. Now, Nichols’ aviation legacy—flying a Cessna 182 or Robinson R44 to the island every Thursday to provide that care—is set in stone.
The first A-29 Super Tucano was delivered Sept. 25, a tangible victory for Embraer and workers in the new factory in Jacksonville, Florida.
