Any chronic condition manifesting pain or requiring pain medication should be evaluated by your physician to determine if you can comply with FAR 61.53. Chronic conditions or those causing severe or limiting pain will be evaluated by the FAA to establish your eligibility for FAA medical certification. More Info: Pain Syndromes
FAA medical evaluations must be accomplished in compliance with specific FAA requirements.
Authorization should be obtained from the Aeromedical Certification Division of the FAA in Oklahoma City. Typically Aviation Medical Examiners (AME’s) will not approve certification and may defer your application to Oklahoma City FAA. The deferral process usually takes 4-6 months without our service.
