General Aviation Protection Act (GAPPA)
You have probably heard of the two pieces of legislation currently going through the US Congress and Senate, which includes a provision that would reform airman medical certificate standards while maintaining safety. The EAA has created a web page that will send a message/petition to your Senators and Representatives urging their support of the General Aviation Pilot Protection Act.
Also, please contact your Senators and Representative and politely ask them to co-sponsor the General Aviation Pilot Protection Act. A phone call generally creates the fastest results.
A possible email…
Dear —- , As a constituent and long time pilot, I wholeheartedly support the General Aviation Pilot Protection Act H.R. 3708 (Rokita) in the House and S. 2103 (Boozman) in the Senate. I would ask that you please support this important Act for General Aviation which:
Expands on the FAA’s successful sport pilot medical standard.
Saves pilots and the FAA money and time.
Addressess the number one concern of pilots.
General aviation is a vital part of the nation’s transportation system and I hope you will please seriously consider becoming a cosponsor.
