Statement from AOPA President Mark Baker:
“Including third class medical reform in this package is great news for general aviation and we’re very pleased to see it moving forward as part of the FAA extension,” said AOPA President Mark Baker. “We appreciate the efforts of general aviation advocates in both the House and Senate. This is a vital issue for the general aviation community, and AOPA has worked with lawmakers day in and day out to build bipartisan support for these common sense changes. Medical reform is long overdue and we look forward to seeing the House and Senate pass this legislation in the coming days.”
