Basic Med and Pilot Medicals
The course was a good refresher for the Medical Certs, but really provided the information on the Basic Med in a very direct and easily understood format. I had a minimal knowledge relating to Basic Med, but am now very confident that I will be able to guide my students appropriately, based on their aspirations as private or higher level pilots. Great job as usual, keep up the great work!! Ron
