Conditions AMEs can issue (CACIs) 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. I am going to go over the final three medical conditions included in the CACI group.
Pilot Health and Medical,
Special Issuance Medical,

AOPA Products and Services,
For pilots, the 60,000-plus-member Civil Air Patrol readily comes to mind when an aerial role in a rescue is launched.
The General Aviation Pilot Protection Act would allow pilots to use the driver’s license medical standard for noncommercial VFR flights in aircraft weighing up to 6,000 pounds with no more than six seats, as long as they carry five or fewer passengers, fly below 14,000 feet msl, and fly no faster than 250 knots.
The basics haven’t changed—flying clubs are still a cost-effective way to fly and enjoy the company of your fellow aviators.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
