FEDERAL AVIATION EXAM (FAA)
(By Appointment Only)
Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 1, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires airmen obtain a medical certificate as “acceptable evidence of physical fitness on a form prescribed by the Administrator.” The primary goal of this examination program is to protect not only those who would exercise the privileges of a pilot certificate but also air travelers and the general public.
A person who meets FAA airmen medical standards, based on a medical examination and an evaluation of medical history, is entitled to a medical certificate without restriction or limitation other than the prescribed limitation as to its duration. Individuals required to hold a medical certificate must have it in their personal possession at all times when exercising the privileges for which they are licensed.
PRIME can provide scheduled FAA flight physical examinations which include medical certification for all three pilot designations: First, Second, and Third Classes plus Air Traffic Controllers (ATC).
The forms provided by FAA to the Aviation Medical Examiners (AME) requires:
- Medical history
- Vital signs
- Vision (with and without correction)
- Hearing (whisper test)
- ECG if required per FAA regulations (Class dependent)
- Sleep apnea questionnaire is used for all of the FAA exams
- ECGs, if required, are transmitted to FAA
- Audiograms are performed on all ATC exams per FAA protocol
