For those of you with special issuance authorizations, you may recall on your previous authorization letters that there was a statement requiring you to carry your authorization letter with you when you fly. This requirement was put in place as a result of an audit from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in 2007, in which the auditor determined that the FAA was not in compliance with ICAO International Standards and Recommended Practices by not including the disqualifying medical conditions on the airman's medical certificate.

Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
