Friday, 31 October 2014 15:56

Surf Air , which calls itself an "all-you-can-fly private membership airline," is expanding its service from its base in Santa Monica, California, to include Carlsbad and Oakland, the company has announced. The added service coincides with the arrival of three new Pilatus PC-12NG aircraft, the first in an order of 65 airplanes to be delivered over the next five years. "Both markets are largely underserved by commercial carriers and hot spots for California-based business and leisure travelers," said Jeff Potter, CEO of Surf Air. "We intend to continue to expand to new markets with similar characteristics that benefit our existing membership base and introduce our innovative travel experience to new members." Service to Carlsbad will start Nov. 18 and Oakland launches on Dec. 15.

Medical 101
Written by FAAST - FAA Safety Team

If the answer to either (or both) of those questions is yes, then check out James Williams' article, "Medical 101: Understanding the Airman Medical Process" in the current FAA Safety Briefing. In the article, Williams outlines not only the tradition medical process, but also some of the alternative certification paths that might be helpful in getting back into the air.
