The EAA is currently rallying support from its members in passing the Pilot's Bill of Rights 2. This bill builds on the original Pilot's Bill of Rights, and aims to allow pilots to operate aircraft using a driver's license in lieu of a third class medical. The bill also gives pilots procedural rights if they are ever under investigation by the FAA. For a more detailed accounting of what changes are in the new bill, see this article on General Aviation News.
It is important to support legislation like this, because it is protecting your ability to operate an aircraft. To contact your congressional representative about supporting this legislation, please visit this link: http://govt.eaa.org/17422/support-pilots-bill-rights-2/. Thank you.
The following is from Steve Wood of Goofy Flight regarding the Friday night gaggle flight in honor of Dave Ford:
The latest news is that the entire Spruce Creek Gaggle Flight is being invited, with as many flights as possible, to take part in the usual Friday Night at The Tree meeting. This will, of course, include a large contingent from Lakes / Goofy Flight - possibly up to 15 planes in one single flight.
