Beginning on May 1, pilots may take advantage of the regulatory relief in the BasicMed rule

The FAA and the general aviation community have a strong track record of collaboration.
Am I the only one that reads this like the FAA is spinning things to make it look like they were behind this change, and to show how much benevolence they have graciously bestowed upon us poor private pilots?????

You say that almost as if it were somehow unexpected.

Back to rumor control stories. Stationed at Kunsan Korea in 1992 loading bombs on F-16s we started a rumor that went base wide quick as can be. Note that Korea, for almost everyone, was normally a 12 Month tour. So one night at the club we start talking about how everyone who got to that base after a certain date was INVOLUNTARLY extended an additional 6 months for an 18 Month tour and all follow-on assignments were cancelled. Laughs ensued as the rumor swept across the room with people having one angry cow after another about not going home as planned and losing very precious follow-on assignments. About a month and a half later we’re at commander’s call and the first thing the commander says is “There’s a rumor going around base about 18 month tours. These are totally and completely FALSE!” Had another good laugh at that one!

Default Grounded till May

If I read that right then I can fly my 9A come May after I take the on-line medical education course that AOPA or EAA comes up with. My special issuance expired Dec 31st and I wasn't going to pay $5000 to take another nuclear stress test with the passage of the Pilots Rights legislature. I see my primary care physician every year and my cardiologist every six months regardless of the special issuance. I felt like I was a victim to the FAA for the past four years concerning the third class medical rules for a special issuance.

It will be interesting to see how this affects the LSA market, particularly the RV-12.

The FAA's Final Rule called "BasicMed" but also known as "Alternative Pilot Physical Examination and Education Requirements*" has been published as a 77 page pdf file. See it here.

*Another acronym - APPEER
