I am so thankful to you for providing this free course! As a CFI, I have had so many pilots asking me questions about BasicMed and I generally give them a "deer in the headlights" look. Now I am much more confident in how the BasicMed system will work. I hope I will be able to answer their questions AND tell them about your course, as it was fantastic and easy to understand! Thanks for explaining BasicMed in plain English!
