What Do You Mean, I Didn't Pass?

Taking That Little Blue Pill? Keep Your Feet On The Ground

By Dr. Erwin Samuelson, AME and Jon Thornburgh, CFI Some types of flying do not require a medical examination. A pilot does not need to have a medical certificate to fly an ultralight, a glider (including a motorglider) or a balloon. However, the FAA expects pilots to use good judgment and stay out of the air if he knows that he has a medical problem that would make flying dangerous.

Everybody here flies." Source: Sally Huntley, who runs a travel agency in Alaska and is now a co-plaintiff in what could be a landmark lawsuit filed against the government. She and her fellow plaintiffs, with the backing of a civil liberties organization, say the TSA's CAPPS II program could ground Alaskans who simply have no other way of traveling... anywhere.
