Stay tuned and soon as we hear something from the FAA, we will post the update online. Hope everyone is tolerably managing their new reality and staying healthy!
Not Abuse. The alternate option is to just comply. There is always SOME way, even if totally not reasonable. The Agency has AMEs abroad, in fact in the UK. They have FAA certified IA's abroad as well.
Your commentary indicate that nothing except exactly what you want them to do, will do for you.
With a bureaucracy the alternatives are always: Comply vs defy.
I do see this a problematic in your situation as the border patrol asks for your medical...and I wonder if they will "get the memo". It's a bureaucratic response, definitely not geared to a (Dominica) UK subject operating an N registered aircraft outside the US. It's a....bureaucracy. I wonder if your governing body will "get the memo" as well.....whaddda world. It's just like our not being able to operate Basic Med in Canada.
We are after all in a period of international non-cooperation. Our relationship to Mexico, is in shambles. Boris Johnson and the EU. Whatsis name in Austria. Sigh.
You might ask AOPA's legal eagles just what that does and does not mean. It sounds a bit narrow to me.
Wildermind At AOPA:
OK, good news everyone. The FAA just released a notice for suspension of enforcement action against medical certificates that expire through June 30th. Further similar action on other FAA certificates will be forthcoming. The notices will be published in the Federal Register, but you can read the story on the home page. www.aopa.org.
There's a big difference between "suspension of enforcement action" and waiver/exemption from the regulation. The former might keep you from getting your ticket suspended, but it would not waive any provision of your insurance policy requiring a current medical certificate. Nor would it prevent a Compliance Action by the FAA. IOW, "suspension of enforcement" doesn't make it legal to fly with an expired medical. Are you sure those are the exact words the FAA used in the official publication in the Federal Register?
Anti-authority? - read each word slowly or get an adult to help you.
One cannot fly to the US - the airport are closed to British citizens, it matters not whether I fly myself or in an airliner.
Your abusive comments are not appreciated - read my original post and your response (again get an adult to help) - you clearly go on here just to insult and annoy people your comments were not helpful and any reasonable person would have not found them to be so.
Seems that the medicals have been extended for three months and others will follow - either way I am good until June.
