Aviation Medical Exams
Please be advised that the new SFAR, printed in the Federal Register, adjusts and extends current FAA relief measures for pilots, to include airman medical applications.
Specifically, the SFAR extends the duration of medical certificates that expire between October 1st and January 31st. The extension is for 60 days, with the exception of pilots living or operating in Alaska, in which the extension is for 90 days. For First Class airman, required ECGs are also extended an additional 60 days (or 90 days for those living or operating in Alaska). If an ECG is due, it should be accomplished in conjunction with the next AME exam done as part of the Airman Medical application.
Upon request, AMCD will also provide a single 60-day extension to any request for required information that is due between October 1st and January 31st. The airman may write a letter to AMCD requesting the extension or call the AMCD Call Center and state their request.
