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.

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.
