Finding information about a medical condition, medication, or how to get your medical back is easier than ever. AOPA's Medical Certification Center has been revamped so that you can find all the information you need about a medical condition on one page.
The redesigned Medical Certification Web page is divided into 15 sections by medical subject, with each section explaining medical standards, the medical certification special issuance process, and AME Assisted Special Issuance procedures. It even tells you how and where to submit your paperwork to the FAA for recertification.
A simple navigation bar on the right includes a section for AOPA's TurboMedical interactive online form along with links to AOPA's searchable databases of aviation medical examiners and FAA approved medications.

As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
