Cherokee6, Lance, and Saratoga Pilots

Cherokee6, Lance, and Saratoga Pilots

TitleI just learned that because My Cherokee6 has a Type Certificate that says its a 7 Passenger airplane even though the optional seat was never installed it won't qualify me to fly under the new Basic Med guidelines. On AOPA their legal experts confirmed this.  I am going forward with new class 3 but interested what other pilots are thinking?

Hi and thanks for writing.  I think it was a smart move on your part to renew your third class medical while all of this stuff gets sorted out in the next couple of years.

Read Advisory Circular 68-1 and look at 5.1.2.  I have a Saratoga and I plan to either get a new STC or amend the STC from the original seven occupants down to my actual configuration of six occupants.  Then your plane will qualify.
