I am going to go over the final three medical conditions included in the CACI group.
Migraine and Chronic Headaches:
The condition must be stable. The diagnoses must be classical or common migraine, chronic tension (or muscle contracture headaches), or cluster headaches. There can be no more than one headache episode per month. In the year just prior to the certification there cannot have been any in-patient hospital admissions and no greater than two outpatient or urgent care visits for any exacerbations. The only daily prophylactic medications are calcium channel agents or beta-blockers. Now if the headaches are relieved by daily doses of NSAIDS, that would not be a problem either.
Pilot Health and Medical,
Pilot Protection Services,
AOPA Products and Services,
The AOPA Medical Advisory Board is the latest group to urge quick action on the proposed FAA rule that would allow thousands more pilots to fly without the need for a third class medical certificate.
The Perlan Project is less than a year away from the first flight of a glider being built to ride waves near the edge of space. While construction continues in Oregon, the team’s pilots are staying proficient in more ordinary aircraft.
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) Medical Advisory Board is the latest group to urge quick action on the proposed Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rule that would allow thousands more pilots to fly without the need for a third class medical certificate.
