“After 18 years without flying, I presented myself to an AME for a 3rd class physical, thinking that I was just fine. He found previously undetected hypertension, and then noted that I had cancer surgery (prostate) and busted me. I thought I was done for, but some study revealed that these conditions qualify for possible Special Issuance. However, I also found that the procedures for asking for Special Issuance are rather confusing, and do not reveal what supporting documents should say. I accidentally stumbled on a website, www.leftseat.com, the site of Pilot Medical Solutions of Bethany, OK. I called and explained my situation to them, and to make a long story short, they walked my AME and personal physicians through the documentation required. The last piece of documentation was received by Pilot Medical Solutions from my personal physician on January 19, 2009. They then hand carried the documentation to the appropriate FAA people, and my 3rd Class Medical Certificate was issued on January 29, 2009. I would strongly recommend that anyone faced with medical issues contact Pilot Medical Services. They aren’t cheap, but I would guess that they saved me from a year of not flying. I now consider using Pilot Medical Services for medical issues to be in the same league as taking your CPA to a Tax Audit. Let the people who really understand the system help.”
– Craig Taylor, Plano, TX

“Pilot Medical Solutions, Inc. is a tremendous asset to the pilot community in this country.  In spite of many difficulties, they were able to resolve my medical issue with the FAA much quicker than if I had just sat back and waited.  They are proactive, very responsive and extremely knowledgeable in all matters concerning medical deferrals.  I highly recommend them to anyone needing any kind of assistance.  Big or little problem, they will help because I believe they CARE ABOUT US PILOTS!  That is the distinction.  Call them!”
– Jacquie Warda

“I have recommended Pilot Medical Solutions many times and will continue to do so.”
– Tommy Thrash

“I received the FAA’s unrestricted clearance and a new medical certificate in only 18 days.”
– Neil Hauft, ATP, Quintuple Bypass, California

“After fourteen years of flying with a special issuance medical certificate, it has been a very pleasant experience to work with Pilot Medical Solutions.  You offer such a complete service for getting the certificate promptly.  I found your employees to be very courteous, efficient and businesslike, and will certainly use your services again.”
– Vernon Peppard, Dallas, TX

“I would like to thank Pilot Medical Solutions for the very quick issuance of my pilot certificate, you submitted my paperwork to the FAA on Thursday, and I received my certificate by mail in California on Monday.”

“I unequivocally recommend Pilot Medical Solutions to the business aviation community and especially to NBAA Members. As a commercial, type-rated pilot who underwent major surgery recently, I had my medical back within a few weeks of my renewal application due exclusively to the efforts of Pilot Medical Solutions. David Hale and his staff are professional, efficient, cordial and most capable. They know what FAA requires, are intimately familiar with the process, and they get results for their clients — promptly and efficiently. I am extremely grateful for their expert guidance and help in getting me back into the cockpit.”

“Your service is outstanding! You certainly deliver timely results!”

“I was told that I would never fly again and for years I had resigned myself to that ‘fact’. Thanks again and again for accomplishing what I thought would be impossible.”
– Seizure Pilot, Oklahoma

“If you’re reading this, you have an issue with a lost medical, or a condition that makes preserving your privileges in aviation no longer a straight-forward matter. I had flown for 30 years, always had a 1st class medical. A massive experimental surgery that saved my life also disqualified me from a medical — never fly again. Two years later, a brand new special issuance process was announced, but it was new to everyone — aeromedical doctors, me, and the FAA itself. How to navigate this maze? I’m a Ph.D. in physics, and work in legal compliance in federal government. -I- was lost. It was that intense.

Pilot Medical Solutions helped me navigate a process to get a first class special issue medical after 6 years of trying otherwise within a procedure that hadn’t even been finalized by the FAA people. There’s no way I’d be flying without them. The answer to every medical issue can’t be ‘yes,’ but if there’s a way they are going to find it! If you need a special issuance medical, this is the way to go!
– John B, Organ Transplant, Arizona

“Many thanks to Pilot Medical Solutions for accomplishing what I had been unable to achieve, and had been told would be the end of my career. I now hold an unrestricted First Class Medical Certificate. After having been through the process with the FAA unassisted, I would unconditionally recommend the services of Pilot Medical Solutions.”
– DC9/MD80 Captain, Cardiovascular Pilot, Florida

“Many I spoke with gave me dim hope, with suggestions of months of waiting for medical review in OKC.  Well, thanks to you, I received my Second Class medical certificate just 14 days after submission.”
– James Ham, Cardiovascular Pilot, Oklahoma

“It’s great to be back in the left seat again!   Your guidance on cardiac rehab and the careful editing of my FAA submission really impressed my local AME.   I could never have put together an effective special issuance package without your help.”
– Jud Schandel, Angioplasty/Stent Implant Pilot, Hawaii

“Pilot Medical Solutions removed what I thought was a permanent restriction.  You saved my career.  Thank you very much!”
– Color Vision Pilot, California

“I can’t tell you how much I appreciate having my medical back and flying again. David Hale and Pilot Medical Solutions did a miraculous job in getting me into the air again after prostate surgery. I am extremely pleased and grateful.”
– Doctor Arthur Muroff, New York

“Pilot Medical Solutions got my medical back with a phone call!”
– Arrhythmia Pilot, Maryland

“Excellent Service”
– Repeat Client, Ed Pierce

“Your service provided me with the first real chance at my dream of flying. My dreams of flying began at 8 when I was first introduced to a 707 cockpit. I cannot say thank you enough for an absolutely fantastic job.”
– Kent Kasten, Insulin-Dependent Diabetic, Illinois

“I just received my unrestricted second-class medical, needless to say, thank you for all your help and support!”

– Bobbi J., Gender Dysphoria, US Flag Carrier

“I could not believe how quickly I had my medical back”
– Larry Omps, CAD Pilot, Virginia

even though I’d heard that it couldn’t be done!”
– Susanne York, Multiple Sclerosis, Texas

“Thank you Pilot Medical Solutions for the exemplary service rendered in the retrieval of my First Class Medical Certificate.”
– Sean L. Longley, Cardiovascular Pilot, Bahamas

“I was using another advisory service to help me get my FAA medical back, and I wasn’t getting the results or service that I needed. I found Pilot Medical Solutions online, and I immediately called and had a conversation with David Hale. Mr. Hale took the time to fully understand my situation, and in that first conversation counseled me on the factors of my case and laid out a clear roadmap of the process. He even coached me on how to proceed if I chose to continue the process with the other company. With that rapport built, I immediately switched my case to Pilot Medical Solutions. Amanda Scruggs took over management of my case, and both she and Mr. Hale provided me with expert guidance. I know for a fact that I got my medical back much earlier and easier than if I had tried to communicate with the FAA directly, and I’m certain that I made the right decision when I switched my case from the other company. I saved time and money using Pilot Medical Solutions, and I couldn’t be happier! ”
– 767 Captain, Park City, Utah

“I would like to share my story with everyone. If it hadn’t been for you, I probably would have never flown again. Thank you very much to David and the Staff at Pilot Medical Solutions.”
– Dale Allen, Seizure Pilot, Hawaii

“They do all the work… We get the credit and the thanks from the pilot.” “knowledgeable, quick and well known to the FAA Aeromedical structure… makes the special issuance process a ‘breeze'”.
– Dr. James Butler, Senior AME, Board Certified Aerospace Medicine

“Pilot Medical Solutions has comprehensive aeromedical information via its Web site (www.leftseat.com). The site has a list of AME’s who are actually pilots (being a pilot isn’t a requirement for AME certification) and the ‘largest list of FAA-approved medications.”
