Pilots Bill of Rights II

The Pilots Bill of Rights II (PBOR) was recently introduced in both the United States Senate and House and is working its way through the legislative process. This will put the long-awaited aeromedical reform into effect, along with a number of other protections for pilots and airmen.

From the EAA’s website; “…The first provision of the new legislation is expansion of the Federal Aviation Administration’s current exemption from third-class medical requirements for sport pilots to cover general aviation aircraft up to 6,000 pounds, carrying up to five passengers, for both VFR and IFR flights at up to 14,000 feet. The bill would also prohibit FAA enforcement for third-class medical certificate violations unless the FAA has issued regulations within 180 days of the enactment of this legislation.”
