EAA284 Chapter Meeting Feb 12 2017

The February meeting of EAA Chapter 284 will be held on Sunday February 12, 2017 2:30 PM at Red Stewart Airfield.

FAA Basic Med
On January 10, 2017 the FAA issued the final rule on Basic Med. This is a simplified medical certification for pilot who have held a valid medical certificate that was issued anytime after July 15, 2006 For an overview see: LINK
Basic Med will become effective on May 1, 2017.

To read the entire rule, which I suggest, click on “final rule (pdf)” to access the actual rule.

The AOPA also has an excellent web site with information on Basic Med: LINK
There are several links for access to Basic Med information.
Advisory Circular 68-1 explains the new rule – LINK
