Re: [stratostar] Winter BOD Meeting

Agreed. But it also should be noted that the AOPA is leading a significant effort to do away with the Class 3 altogether for smaller operations (not more than 1 passenger).

ETA - Tandem skydiving operations by a self examined TM would be prohibited under this proposal.

Quote;
"AOPA and the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) on March 20, 2012 submitted a request to the FAA that, if successful, would offer pilots an option of obtaining a 3rd class FAA medical or instead become educated on medical self-assessment and operate familiar aircraft recreationally using the driver's license as the baseline of health."
