A CACI is not some new infectious disease, but it is a new procedure that will allow your aviation medical examiner (AME) to issue your medical certificate in the office for some medical conditions that previously required a special issuance authorization. CACI stands for “Conditions AMEs Can Issue.”
The FAA physicians in Oklahoma City and Washington, D.C., amended the certification policy (different and easier than having to change a “regulation”) for a group of low-risk medical conditions to eliminate the special issuance requirement.
