FAA physicals are done by physicans that actually see a person and then make a determination about airworthiness.
Our CG physicals (CG-714) are made out and signed by an MD most familiar with our medical well being. Then reviewed by a someone that never personally sees us and then makes determinations about our seaworthiness. Sometimes after much waiting and alot of paperwork.
Why didn’t our CG use the FAA model in regards to physical ability determinations? Too expensive to teach FAA doctors about the physical demands of going to sea?
Just wondering or am I the only one bothered by this?
