I am a senior AME and authorised to carry out all classes of FAA medical, including initial medicals for First (for airline captain), Second (for commercial flying) or Third (for private flying).
Prior to attending for your medical, you should create a free account with:
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 add the medical data.
Please make sure you fill all dates in U.S. format and enter 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 appear in lower case on your certificate.
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.
