The FAA can qualify applicants who have minor cerebrovascular blockage that causes no symptoms. Recertification is also possible after corrective surgery.
Medical recertification is possible for pilots who have had a stroke, transient ischemic attack, transient global amnesia, or other disturbance of consciousness.
After initial certification by FAA staff doctors, subsequent renewals qualify for AME Assisted Special Issuance (AASI).
If not previously submitted, all records covering prior hospitalizations and/or other period of observation and treatment are required.
