Yup both the BasicMed checklist and AOPA on-line course are now available.

https://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/...rm_8700-2_.pdf

https://basicmedicalcourse.aopa.org/...ml#/auth/logon
You don't have to be a member of AOPA to take the course.

You can now meet with your doc and take the course so you can fly under BasicMed starting on May 1, 2017.

Interestingly, the good/bad definitions of medical problems seem to be pretty much up to the physician...

2. Conduct a comprehensive medical examination in accordance with the checklist by:
a. Examining each item specified;
b. Exercising medical discretion, address, as medically appropriate, any medical conditions identified; and
c. Exercising medical discretion, determine whether any medical tests are warranted as part of the comprehensive medical examination.

Interesting to me is the fact that supposedly the basic med form is not submitted to the FAA. It is only kept with your logs. If so, why are there sections required to provide information on any administrative actions or traffic convictions, medical certificates ever been revoked, etc in section 2.

Is the general practice physician you go to for BasicMed required to report such "transgressions" to the FAA as reported in section 2? Does not make sense to me to ask these questions if it is not intended for the FAA to enforce actions on the data in some manner.

I'm actually really surprised that the FAA actually came up with something that is so non-strict, and leaving so much up to the discretion of someone besides themselves. I was expecting something much more complicated than this.

I think the FAA had to do this; it probably pained them deeply as well. The legislation was written well enough that the FAA couldn't really add or tweak anything.

From a FAA Q&A sheet -

A: Any state-licensed physician who is familiar with your complete health history would be a good choice.

Is a PA licensed as a physician in your state?

AZ State Law has this definition -

"Physician" means a doctor of medicine who is licensed pursuant to this chapter.

Of course the FAA wouldn't come up with something like that. Nobody expected they would. It literally took an "act of Congress" to get them to do it. I think they got the message and realized that they shouldn't mess with the guys that write their paychecks. Referring to Congress, not us p on's.

The only thing that remains to be seen is how many non-AME MDs will sign off on the form.

I have my annual (well, okay, bi- or tri-annual ) physical with my GP in a few weeks, and will be taking the form in to ask her if she'll sign it. We shall see...
