Pursuant to having read the NTSB report and Mike McComb's comments,
it is interesting to note that while the NTSB were able to gain
access to the pilot's medical records after the fact, the FAA
in approving his flying credentials in the first place, apparently
did not. Had they verified the pilot's medical history against
his application, the FAA would most likely have discovered discrepancies
providing cause for rejection.
Incidentally, Capt. Mike McComb
is Chief Pilot for Grand Canyon Airlines, based in Flagstaff,
AZ. Mike is a frequent contributor on the subject matter of aviation
safety as well as on aviation archaeology and history.
