Call to action: Medicals

Urgent Request to Contact Your Senator Today/Tonight Regarding 3rd Class Medical!!!

General Aviation needs your help TODAY!

We need to act immediately on the issue of the Third Class Medical issue.
The US Senate is currently considering a “must pass” bill to fund our nation’s highway programs. An amendment has been filed to the highway bill by Senator Joe Manchin that would bring needed reforms to the third class medical process. This amendment will help General Aviation by removing costly and antiquated requirements making it easier and safer for tens of thousands of people to fly.

As soon as you are finished reading this message, please call or email your US Senators and simply ask them to:

a) Support Third Class Medical reform by voting in favor of the Manchin Amendment to the highway bill (Amendment #2267). This adds third class medical reform language to the highway bill (#PBOR2). And,

b) Urge your Senators to co-sponsor the Pilot’s Bill of Rights “S. 571”
This is very easy and you can do it right now:
1. Simply call: 202-224-3121 and ask to speak to your Senator’s office. Tell the Senator’s office you are constituent and you are calling to urge him/her to support the Manchin Amendment to the highway bill currently under consideration.

2. Simply CLICK HERE to find your Senator’s email address and direct office phone number and deliver the same message.

Whichever way you choose, please contact your Senators now.

Time is of the essence as the vote is tomorrow!

Sorry I'm in Washington state and our senators are as anti U.S. as they get. I sent the request to both of them, you never know maybe one of them is getting a kick-back from someone who gains from creating more aviation.

Both these senators have given the big "We Love You Boeing" speeches one day and voted for more restrictions on Aviation the next.
