In the event you are still searching for a physician to perform the exam, here is a web link to our Doctor finder page. These individuals have contacted AOPA and shown an interest in performing Basic Med examinations. https://www.aopa.org/advocacy/pilots/medical/doctor-finder
...what, if anything is being done to counter it?
Invent a time machine and "retire" Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) before that law happened? I'm just not seeing anything any of us can do to change this situation short of a game-changing tort reform bill at the Federal level.
Vampiress - Thanks for taking the time to reply. I'm hearing more and more anecdotal stories regarding pilot's physicians unwilling to participate in BasicMed. I have also been told that AME candidates undergoing indoctrination training with FAA in Oklahoma are subjected to a pejorative narrative regarding BasicMed.
So, I do rare Basic meds...these are the guys whose SI I have done over the years and I know their condition well, and I’ll do it with their latest renewal....so that at the time I do it, the pilot also meets the federal medical std. such that Mr. “name them all and let God sort ‘em out” can go s-ck an egg...
