A while back, we posted an article on our blog titled "General Aviation and COVID-19: Is It Safe to Fly?" that gave GA pilots tips on how they could fly with other pilots and stay safe from the virus. We've come a long way since December, and with a high percentage of the population now vaccinated, the risks of GA pilots being exposed to COVID-19 while flying have lessened significantly.
"Pilots, Covid, and Your Health"
On Saturday, July 10, 2021, Mid Island Air Service and the FAAS Team will be hosting a free virtual seminar titled "Pilots, Covid, and Your Health". This ninety-minute virtual briefing will cover where we have been where we are now, and where we are going as far as staying safe while in the air, and what the reality is as far as possible exposure to the coronavirus. It will also cover the nuances of the 8500 form in determining eligibility and certification, including special issuances, and much more.
This virtual seminar discussion will be lead by Arnold D Panzer, MD – COMM Helo, PVT IFR fixed-wing, internal medicine, Senior Aviation Medical Examiner, Certified Medical Review Officer, Certified Medical Examiner for Commercial Motor vehicles.
The ZOOM meeting is open to all pilots and pilot enthusiasts who register in advance, no later than the day before. Mid Island Air Service will do their best to approve any registrations open the morning of the event, but cannot guarantee admittance, so please register as soon as possible to guarantee admittance.
