On the 17th I have my annual cancer review. If all is still well, on the 18th I am calling a Flight medical examiner and scheduling a physical. August / September is the time of each year that my medical insurance will about cover any test needed and I am going to take the chance on either getting a waiver and at least a 3rd Class Medical (though I will take the 2nd class exam) or be denied and end totally over 55 years of flying.
I renewed my CFIs on July 30th and in talking to the FSDO examiner, he did not give me a warm and fuzzy feeling that the whole elimination of the 3rd class for licensed pilots was coming anytime soon.
Another new adventure for me that I will just have to see what happens.
Wish me luck - Bob
