FAA medical exam is a "medical check-ride"
and a potentially grounding
event. Aviation Medical
Examiners (AMEs) often discover conditions or issues which require
extensive documentation prior to the issuance of a medical certificate.
Usually pilots are not prepared for this.
FAA's 1000 acre facility in OKC
workload, and FAA regulations, require
AMEs to defer the application to the FAA Medical Certification Division in
Oklahoma for processing. This delays the pilot by
several months and reduces the likelihood of favorable results.
Pilots can be confident they are
prepared for the FAA medical exam with a confidential
pre-certification assessment by Pilot Medical Solutions.
Confidential pre-certification planning virtually
eliminates premature applications and unnecessary grounding.
Medical Solutions also provides personalized support through pro-active FAA medical
case management. We work directly with
private physicians to retrieve, review, organize, and submit medical records required
by the FAA.

With Pilot Medical Solution's
management, treating physicians receive unrestricted clear communication regarding the FAA's
requirements. Our office collaborates personally with each medical
facility to obtain the necessary records in the least amount of time.
Since all essential documentation
available at the time of the FAA examination, AME's save
valuable time once lost to tracking down records or waiting for special
authorization. AME's may issue a
medical certificate rather than defer a pilot's application.
FAA's workload is reduced too. Almost 50% of the applications received by
the FAA are incomplete or contain incorrect information. This requires the FAA
to spend a great deal of time reviewing records and sending letters requesting additional information.
Solutions provides the FAA with an organized and complete case permitting an immediate decision.
