More importantly how far do we allow the FAA to go with this nonsense? Why would they ever get more restrictive with medical requirements? When was the last time a pilot in poor health created any problem greater than the other pilot could handle by there self? Has it ever happened? We shouldn't even be required to get medicals. It's just something we accept because it's the way it has always been.

And no this new rule will not effect me. This stuff just bothers me.
The government frequently solves problems that don't exist by passing new laws and regulations to further restrict or otherwise hamper a citizen's ability to earn a living.

It's not about saving the children or "making the skies safer." It's all about control. Gotta sing for your supper, boy. And don't you forget it.

Zee state vill decide who should do what, where, when, why, and how.
