Schuyler Sky King, a law enforcement officer from Grover, Ariz., was having many problems with urination, so he was seeing a urologist pretty regularly. He was a law enforcement pilot flying a 1960 Cessna 310D off his ranch, The Flying Crown, and required a second class medical certificate for his job. He had done much reading on his symptoms of prostate enlargement and knew that the FAA accepted the use of "alternative therapy," so he regularly took saw palmetto, which did relieve some of his urinary symptoms. He saw his urologist every six months and was performing regular PSA levels.
