President's Message








WPA State President Jim Posner

The biggest news in decades for General Aviation is the passage of the sweeping changes in the third class medical requirements! President Obama signed the legislation today (July 15th) into law. Getting thousands of grounded pilots back in the air will mean a lot for our economy and General Aviation overall. More aircraft will be purchased and maintained, flight schools will benefit, fuel sales will soar; the list goes on.

Self-certification on a leg-by-leg basis of every flight is something we have been doing for as long as we have been flying. Now it will be recognized as a legitimate way to determine fitness for at least the type of flying that we all do (non-commercial) with the blessing of the pilot’s own personal physician, not someone in Oklahoma City.

There are still hoops to jump through, both initially and periodically on an on-going basis. Check out this new legislation on AOPA’s website.
