The initial presentation of any physical / musculoskeletal issue requires an evaluation be performed, by your physician, to establish eligibility for FAA medical certification. This includes but is not limited to:
- Surgical Procedures
- Motion Coordination
- Limited Range of Motion or Functionality
- The regular use of pain or anti-inflammatory medications.
- Active disease of bones and joints
- Ankylosis, curvature, or other marked deformity of the spinal column sufficient to interfere with the performance of airman duties
- Intervertebral Disc Surgery
- Musculoskeletal effects of: Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy Myasthenia Gravis, or Myopathies
- Symptomatic herniation of intervertebral disc
- Other disturbances of musculoskeletal function, acquired or congenital, sufficient to interfere with the performance of airman duties or likely to progress to that degree
FAA evaluations must be accomplished in compliance with FAA requirements. In many cases, Aviation Medical Examiners (AME’s) cannot approve certification and will defer the application to Oklahoma City FAA. The deferral process usually takes 4-6 months without our service.
