USPA deemed FAA medical invalid in Tandem Skydiving June 6, 2023 On 5/28/2023 at 3:53 PM, ufk22 said: So, rather have USPA just turn him in to the FAA? If this was 10 or more years ago, I might believe that maybe this was a personal thing between the TI and his RD, but not now. The new disciplinary procedures, combined with a preference for education over discipline by the safety and training committee, would lead me to bet on USPA being in the right on this one. Actually thats exactly what USPA did, was contact the FAA to take this instructors medical. after the FAA concluded that there was no legitimate reasoning for their request. The USPA decided they can just choose not to accept the memebers valid medical. they even posted it in parachutist which was shared earlier. "refuse to recognize a class 3 medical, for failing to meet FAA requirements" when asked what requirement the guy didnt meet there was never an answer given, probably because its bs.
