Brief Description:

Teaching Points:

  • FAA’s Office of Aerospace Medicine provides medical certification guidance and medical information to pilots.
  • BasicMed – an alternative to traditional pilot medical certification is available to most pilots who are not engaged in flying for compensation or hire.
  • The effects of commonly prescribed and over-the-counter drugs can comprise pilot’s ability to fly safely.
  • Pilots must consider the effects of combinations of drugs.  This is difficult to do without consulting a physician.
  • AMEs are the best source for the effects of drugs and combinations of drugs.
  • Pilots must disclose all of their medical issues to their AMEs in order to receive a comprehensive assessment of their medical condition and fitness to fly.
