BasicMed - Third Class FAA Medical Reforms are  Here!




 The BasicMed reform for Third  Class Private  Pilots  became a reality on May 1, 2017. A  paper I recently published in the Delaware Medical Journal describes BasicMeds's applicability, and the process for both pilot and physician.  As I am a specialist and not a primary care physician such as an internist or family practitioner I will not be doing BasicMed exams, however I will continue to offer the standard Third Class Medical Exam for Private Pilots.
