Less Doctors, More Gurus, A
Pilot Medical Solution

FAA’s Chief of Medical Certification retired recently, Pilot Medical

must have extensive knowledge of FAA medical criteria, experience managing
government paperwork, and they must be tenacious to help pilots with
jeopardized medical issues.

through timely document management. What pilots need is someone who knows
what the FAA expects and is willing to spend several hours calling,
faxing, sending and reading emails, pouring over complex paperwork,
working with the pilots’ personal physician to explain essential
phraseology and assuring compliance with constantly changing FAA
requirements. This is a labor intensive, heavily bureaucratic process
which is usually counter-intuitive to doctors.”
Pilot Medical Solutions even has its gurus managing
clients who themselves are physicians. An objective indication that
Document Gurus are best suited to help pilots obtain FAA waivers.
