The FAA extended the deadline for those wishing to submit comments on the EAA/AOPA third-class medical certification exemption request to September 14, and EAA is helping aviators do so at the EAA Welcome Center.
The exemption request would allow recreational pilots to operate many popular GA aircraft by completing an online medical awareness course, carrying a valid state driver's license, and observing specified operating limitations.
If you have not yet commented on the third-class medical certification exemption request, visit the EAA Welcome Center to make sure your voice gets heard.
"We are here, we are taking your comments, and we are entering everything," said EAA staff member Tim Hoversten said. "We strongly encourage you to stop by."
The EAA Welcome Center, located directly west of Phillips 66 Plaza, is open 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
