Step 2

Complete the mandatory online application with the FAA on MedXPress.

Step 4

Print your MedXpress application and bring it along to your appointment. We cannot import your application without the confirmation number.

Tip 1

Contact a third-party source, such as AOPA, if you have any concerns about your current health and/or medical history.

Tip 2

When in doubt, ask questions — to either the AOPA, call the FAA directly, or reach out to your AME (Aviation Medical Examiner.)

Tip 3

Be sure to honestly and thoroughly answer the questions on your FAA MedXPress application. Note that it asks for ANY medical issues in your lifetime, not just recent ones. Answer truthfully about any history of convictions/legal issues, no matter how long ago. If you have reported an issue on a prior MedXPress application, you should still list it on subsequent applications, but then note “PRNC” in the comments which means “previously reported, no changes.” In signing the MedXPress application you are legally attesting that your application is accurate

Tip 4

Details! Make sure you fill in your name the same way you do in other places – such as on the FAA student pilot application. For example, if you put “Jr.” on your medical form, but not on your student pilot application, it could cause a delay.

Ready to Schedule Your Exam?

You MUST complete an online application via MedXPress before we can perform your medical exam. The FAA will not allow us to perform an exam until the MedXPress application is completed AND you have a confirmation number which is provided by email from the FAA once an application is validated. NOTE: a MedXPress application must be submitted NO MORE THAN 60 days prior to your exam. Applications older than 60 days are automatically deleted by the FAA and are not recoverable.

Please verify, understanding that you must complete your MedXPress application AND have received your confirmation number prior to arriving for your medical exam, AND the application will be submitted within 60 days of your appointment.
