"Mr FAA, thank you, but now, I am no longer satisfied. Please let me exercise my Private and Instrument privileges without a medical." We are never satisfied and always want more.
Welcome to the human condition. There are few people making $100,000 per year who would not like to be making $200,000.
Constantly wanting to improved our conditions is kind of how we got into skyscrapers from caves.
But we HAVE improved things…that's how we got sport flying. Now we can fly 120 kt airplanes up to 10k feet across the country with very sophisticated modern airplanes with advanced avionics and only a DL for a medical.
Its efficient and specific to the type of flying pilots said they wanted, and cost effective.
