When a Federal agency alot of times wish to do something, they point accross the ocean and state its bring done there, etc, etc.
Go outside in a rural area and point up to the sky, and see how long it takes to see a general aviation aircraft fly by your finger. You may be there with your finger in the air for hours.
Now go to the interstate and point at the cars, non commercial going down the highway, and guess how many of the 40,000 auto dealths last year had a physical the last 2 years years or anytime before they died in an auto accident.
My point is, if there is a concern about dealths and accidents, then treat everyone in a fair and equal manner. Physicals for auto drivers, boat drivers, and private pilots. Do that and I will stop bitching about the FAA and their choking down the potential growth of aviation with stupid regulations.
I have never been denied a flight physical, 3rd, 2nd, or 1st class, but I will not take anymore of them, and take a chance of losing my LSA flying.
