AOPA’s Pilot Information Center technical specialists receive many questions from members about specific medications and if they are allowed for flying. The FAA does not make available an official list of medications that are considered appropriate for aviation activities. But AOPA has one.

Your mission: Fly with eight F-15s to the Philippines, rejoin, refuel with air tankers, engage an unknown number of Red Air fighters, refuel again, and then return home to Okinawa. And fly with radio silence up to the first contact with the Red Air fighters.
Find out some of the basics of the process of how the FAA does medical certification.
The Aviation Safety Reporting System is a voluntary safety reporting program that allows airmen to make anonymous reports to the government about issues encountered in aviation, with anonymity allowing the airman to be candid–even when their actions may have been a violation of the regulations.
AOPA thanks our members for their continued support in protecting the freedom to fly.
