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.

To avoid pilot deviations, follow the steps outlined in this fact sheet:

The Flying Scholarship for Girls offers one southern California high school student 30 hours of instruction and flight time at Santa Monica Airport.

SantaMonica AirportThe fact is the city's plan to close Santa Monica Airport has always been about money – regardless of what the city has previously claimed.

Below is what happens when a multi-county political machine backed by Big Development, which stands to make hundreds of millions on high rise development on existing airport property, get together. Note all the references to the pseudo political organizations - which were all likely promised something in return for their endorsement.

If this doesn't anger you and get you involved in this fight to save Santa Monica Airport from Big Development's plan to line their pockets, then the politicians will win. What's it going to be?
