IMPORTANT FAA UPDATE:
The FAA is allowing pilots to continue to fly if their medical certificate expires between March 31 and June 30 to reduce the burden on the country’s healthcare system during the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you are in good health and ready to obtain your FAA Medical Certificate, find an AME, schedule an appointment, and fill out your application on MedXPress before going to see the doctor. Be truthful on this application, especially in the area of alcohol related driving offenses. The FAA can and will check your answers against the National Driver Register database. Falsification of facts can lead to fines and revocation of certificates.
You can find an AME using the FAA’s database found at https://www.faa.gov/pilots/amelocator/. The following AME’s are near the Clermont County Airport and have a good reputation for a fair medical assessment:
If you’ve held a valid medical certificate after July 14, 2006, you may be able to fly under the BasicMed rule. Read more here. If you are seeking a basic med evaluation, be sure to complete the airman portion of the basic med checklist, print and bring with you the day of the exam.
