As a reminder, all pilots seeking an FAA medical are required to apply online via FAA’s MedXPress system.  FAA MedXPress allows anyone requiring an exam to electronically complete the FAA Medical Application (Form 8500-8). Information entered into MedXPress will be transmitted to the FAA and available for the Aviation Medical Examiner (AME) to review at the time of your exam.  A copy of your MedXPress application should be brought to the exam.

A synopsis of FAA medical standards is available here.

For those seeking basic med, complete the airman portion of the basic med checklist, print and bring with you to the exam.
