It's also why, up until now, operating under this different medical standard is limited to LSA, daytime, VFR. Because of the demonstrated success, we are on the verge of having this medical standard applied to all Private Pilot privileges.
§61.53 Prohibition on operations during medical deficiency.
(b) Operations that do not require a medical certificate. For operations provided for in §61.23(b) of this part, a person shall not act as pilot in command, or in any other capacity as a required pilot flight crewmember, while that person knows or has reason to know of any medical condition that would make the person unable to operate the aircraft in a safe manner.
(c) Operations requiring a medical certificate or a U.S. driver's license. For operations provided for in §61.23(c), a person must meet the provisions of—
(2) Paragraph (b) of this section if that person holds a U.S. driver's license.
