Re: [Deisel] Winter BOD Meeting

I don't think that you can really compare civilian to military tandem ops.

Ah but that is not what we are talking about. If they are doing military op's then they don't need a USPA equivalent/exemption to the rule then do they. And for that many of the FAA rules fly out the window, the military does what the fuck they want to do when they want to do it regardless of USPA or FAA because they do not have to answer to them.

The only reason to need or get one is if they are conducting op's on a USPA dz or working as staff on civilian dz doing civilian work jumps. The case has been made, they shouldn't have to comply with the requirements that we do, because they are military people and have already been given a military medical exam that should be granted as an equivalent, so they don't have to get a second medical exam, same as I'm saying for any DOT approved medical card holder, if your going to allow an equivalent, then allow it for everyone and not some special interest group that seems to think their special because they are in the armed services.

Bottom line is the FAA class 3 medical is nothing different, other then the type of paper work filed and where it's filed, then the DOT medical all safety sensitive positions.
