General Discussion  - 
 
I wrote my Democratic congress people asking them to support this legislation. The proposed legislation would allow pilots to use a valid state driver's license in place of the traditional medical certificate if the flights are:

Not for compensation
Conducted in VFR operations only, at or below 14,000 feet MSL
No faster than 250 knots
In aircraft with no more than six seats and no more than 6,000 pounds gross takeoff weight.

It is GOP sponsored legislation, but I support it.
This community should write their US representative also.

+Jason Phelan just a little nose down pitch change. Fixed with a quick swipe of the trim wheel. Then the flaps need a couple more nose up swipes.

What is the definition of "General Aviation" in this community?  I see a lot of military and commercial aviation.  General is, in my mind, small private aircraft.

That's great for looking at the community directly, but not for the "all" feed that includes the community.

"If you had told me, a month ago, that the Christian Right would have a strong reaction to a bearded religious zealot in a headscarf urging men to take child brides, I'd have believed that."  It is what really has happened that is hard to believe.

Under new-ish management. Previous reviews are irrelevant. Menu is close to the same, better service. No more garlic fries, different burger and chicken items. Tonight's take home order was messed up, maybe our fault but it seems they need to get their act together a little more.
