American pilot medicals

For the FAA I can do all classes of medical, including initial medicals for 1st (airline captain), 2nd (commercial flying) or 3rd (private flying).  

Prior to attending for your medical please create an account (this is free) with: 

FAA MedXPress

The FAA will email you the login details so that you can do your application online before you come.  Please email me the confirmation number or bring it to your appointment so that I can take over online to do the medical bit.

Make sure you fill all dates in US format and put your name and address exactly as you want it to appear on your medical certificate (don't forget to capitalise your name, street names etc, or these will be in lower case on your cert).

A First Class FAA medical certificate is valid for 6 months.

A Second Class FAA medical certificate is valid for 1 year.

A Third Class FAA medical certificate is valid for 2 years; or 5 years if you are under 40 years old at the time of the medical.

All of the FAA validities are measured from the last day of the month.



I strongly respect your right to dignity during medical examination.  Intimate examination (i.e. breast, testicular and rectal examination) is not part of aircrew medicals.  

If you wish, you can download testicular self-examination leaflets here and breast self-examination leaflets here.

A chaperone is always present for female medicals and can be arranged for male medicals - just ask!
