Target: FAA Administrator, Michael Huerta
Goal: Praise plans for bi-annual mental and emotional evaluation of pilots.
Commercial pilots will now undergo bi-annual mental and emotional health evaluations under the guidelines set forth by the Federal Aviation Administration. The goal is to maintain the well-being of those performing one of the world’s most important professions. Thank the FAA for working so hard to ensure the safety of pilots and their passengers by increasing mental evaluations.
In light of recent events that left the public increasingly concerned for the mental state of pilots, the FAA has wasted no time getting to work on procedures sure to benefit everyone. In order to maintain a license, pilots will now receive bi-annual evaluations by a medically trained professional. Ideally, these evaluations will expose any issues the administration should know about before clearing a pilot for flight.
Although these evaluations are by no means foolproof, it increases necessary conversations and represents the need for pilots to receive top-notch medical care. This is a huge step in the right direction for pilots themselves and those who entrust them with their safety.
Procedures can only improve from here as the FAA works to find the best possible methods of treatment for pilots everywhere. Please sign this petition to thank the FAA for increasing mental evaluations of pilots and working to maintain the safety of the public.
Dear Mr. Huerta,
History demonstrates the need for pilots to undergo mental evaluations in order to ensure the safety of themselves and the public. The FAA has spent a great amount of time discussing the best possible methods of evaluation and treatment for pilots to maintain a license. These talks are increasingly important and represent a desire for the safety of all involved. Thank you for your work with the FAA to ensure the emotional well-being of pilots.
Passengers will be put at ease knowing so much is being done to benefit everyone involved in the process of flying. Though these new methods may not be entirely successful, it represents a greater goal and a big step forward for the FAA.
The public’s knowledge of the FAA’s work and a desire for safety among pilots and passengers is of the utmost importance. To avoid any future tragedies, the administration must continue these conversations and push forward with all plans involving the safety of aviation.
Once again, thank you for developing plans to improve the mental health of pilots and for working so hard to ensure safety throughout the process of flight.
[Your Name Here]
