In my last article I began giving you all some details and pointers on what you need to get your treating physicians to provide you prior to going to your AME should you have one of the conditions that AMEs can issue (CACI). To reiterate, the following conditions are included in this new medical certification procedure: arthritis, asthma, chronic hepatitis C, glaucoma, hypertension, hypothyroidism, migraine and chronic headaches, pre-diabetes conditions, and renal cancer.

Through an innovative new program developed by the AOPA Aviation Finance Co., AOPA is offering flight training financing.
AOPA is calling on its members to take immediate action to build support for new legislation that would reform the third class medical process and provide other protections for general aviation pilots.
Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) talks about the Pilots Bill of Rights II, which includes a provision to allow private pilots to fly an aircraft with up to six seats, weighing up to 6,000 pounds, VFR or IFR, without a third class medical certificate. The bill also reforms the NOTAM system, and provides more legal protections for pilots accused of regulatory infractions.
