My practice is limited to Federal Aviation Medical Exams only. As a Senior Aviation Medical Examiner, certified by the FAA since 1986, I perform 1st, 2nd and 3rd class FAA exams on pilots. My practice is 100% fee for service. I do not accept any insurance.
First class pilots get one exam per year until they reach the age of 40. They get a baseline EKG done at the age of 35. At 40 they are required to get an EKG once per year and to have their first class certificate updated every six months.
Second class pilots are certified once per year and do not need an EKG at any age.
Third class pilots are certified for five years under the age of 40 and do not need an EKG at any age. At the age of 40 their certification is good for 2 years.
I am experienced with pilots requiring a special issuance from the FAA and will gladly speak to anyone calling my office with questions or problems they have concerning FAA clearance, special issuance and certification. My focus is on getting pilots their medical certification as quickly and efficiently as possible and keep them flying.
