With medical certification delays approaching all-time lows—an average of 30 days, even for special issuance medicals—getting medically qualified to fly has never been easier.
But you still can’t do it alone; you need the help of the right aviation medical examiner (AME). Look for an AME who makes FAA exams an important part of his practice. Such doctors stay on top of changing regulations and know exactly what tests, medical records, and reporting forms you need. You’ll also want an AME who understands the realities of flying, is willing to answer questions before your exam, and is prepared to call the FAA regional flight surgeon for guidance.
AOPA can help you find a designated AME near you.
