There Are New FAA Medical Rules For Pilots

John and Martha King

Hello Fellow Pilots,

You’ve probably heard the news. As of May 1, third-class medical reform, now known as BasicMed, goes into effect. It is a victory for the aviation organizations like AOPA and EAA that pressed so hard for it, and for all pilots that have found FAA medical certification an intimidating and frustrating process. 

The great news is that BasicMed allows pilots with a valid U.S. driver’s license to fly without holding a current FAA medical certificate …

Mid America Flight Museum 2016

By Nick Viggiano

Scott glover flying the P-51, Andrew Kiest flying the Beech 18 and Kelly Mohan flying the T-28. Matt Bongers was flying the photo plane SNJ-3. (Mid America Flight Museum)I started a new aviation journey about a year ago. Two friends who did not know each other (at the time) were pulling me to Mount Pleasant, Texas, and the Mid America Flight Museum. One longtime friend, Jason Bell, who lives in Mt. Pleasant, was finally bitten by the aviation bug and was pursuing his private ticket. The other, longtime friend, Erik Johnston, an aviation videographer, was volunteering and producing YouTube videos for the Mid America Flight Museum, based at the Mt. Pleasant airport.

Well, after a minimum of arm-twisting, one Saturday in February, I headed east from Dallas to visit my friend, Jason, and the Mid America Flight Museum.

After meeting up with and having lunch with Jason, we headed to the museum. As we drove onto the airport, in a hanger off in the distance, I spotted two gleaming three-blade props! Just the props were visible in the sunlight, and the rest of the aircraft was in the shadows. 

I blurted out P-38! JB answered NO. As we got closer, I was dumbfounded! Now, I know my warbirds and military aircraft, but I am so-so with classic civilian aircraft. The aircraft turned out to be a rare bird. The Howard 250 is a post-war executive conversion of a Lockheed Loadstar and one of the only four built with tricycle-landing gear.

Editorial: Current Events

By Ed Downs

As implied by the title of these editorial thoughts, current events often drive the creative rants offered by those who share their opinions in public. This month is no exception, although the quantity and volume of news stories parading through the TV media and web makes it hard to choose which one to go with. The obvious answer to, “which subject do we exploit,” is to simply combine several stories together. How about recent events, which include an embarrassed movie star, the “lying” media, a famous cartoonist, and of course, a lesson from the FAA’s favorite subject, Aeronautical Decision Making (ADM). Tough assignment? “Heck no,” as they say in red neck country, “Hold my beer.”

The embarrassed movie star is an easy story to pick up on. Once again, actor Harrison Ford is in the news with a flying adventure. In today’s world of smart phone cameras, it is virtually impossible to make any kind of mistake without someone catching it on video, ready to run on the 10 o’clock news. Such was the case when Mr. Ford lined up with a taxiway, as opposed to a parallel runway, at John Wayne Airport in Southern California. Ford has a large collection of aircraft (can you sense the envy?) based at the besieged Santa Monica airport, which he frequently takes out for a local flight. 

Readers might recall his forced landing in a beautifully restored PT22 a couple of years ago when the engine failed (a part failure in the carburetor) while departing Santa Monica. It was generally agreed that his survival was a demonstration of remarkable flying skills under the worst of possible conditions. However, this most recent incident gave the “lying” media an excellent opportunity to come up with a story that makes yellow journalism look like Pulitzer Prize writing.
