Our primary function is to perform the FAA Aviation Medical Examination. Performing an exam does not include the submission of any documentation to the FAA beyond the examination report itself (which is completed within the FAA’s system). In addition we offer a paid specialized service to assist you in managing any documentation that may be required for FAA-related matters. This service is designed to ease the administrative burden and provide expert support, but we want to ensure that expectations are aligned.
You may schedule stand-alone Document Processing by clicking the link below. This will be a virtual service. You may schedule the service for any available date and then we will adjust it to coincide with the date we process your documents. We are also happy to add this service on to an existing exam appointment for processing at the time of the exam.
We are committed to providing high-quality service and ensuring that your interactions with the FAA are as smooth as possible. If you have any questions or concerns about our services or the process, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to assist you and provide the support you need throughout this journey.
Sometimes the FAA will require additional information in order to make a certification decision. There are two pathways to submit necessary documentation to the FAA: 1) Self-Service, or 2) AME-Assisted (Case Management or AME Consultation).
When the FAA makes a request, you go out and gather the items you believe they are requesting and you mail it off to the FAA. Then you wait the “60-72” days for the FAA to send you a reply. If you have already completed your medical exam and you have submitted everything the FAA requires to assess your case, their reply should include your medical certificate and/or Special Issuance Authorization. Often times, however, the FAA will instead send you a letter with very specific directions on additional items you’ll need to submit. After obtaining and submitting those additional items you wait again for their reply. This process repeats until the FAA has what they need to come to their certification decision.
Usually takes the longest time; at least 2-3 months and often 6-9 months or more. Increased likelihood of your providing insufficient, incorrect, or excessive documentation to the FAA resulting in delays and/or the need for additional reviews. Each review adds another 2-3 months!
With Case Management you are hiring a professional to take over the management of your case. Your Manager will be predictive to help anticipate what the FAA is most likely to request of you. They’ll help you understand what the FAA needs. They’ll receive and review documents for completeness and try and catch anything that might further delay your case. They’ll be the ones to submit your items directly to the FAA all in an effort to minimizing the time it takes and to optimize your outcome!
Takes the least amount of time*. Higher likelihood of optimal certification (advice and suggestions by your AME on how to optimize your medical circumstance to minimize certification issues). Get items resolved correctly up front so you don’t have to worry about them the rest of your career!
The cost to have a professional manage your case. We'll quote you a price specific to your case at your Consultation or upon written request.
* We can make no guarantees on behalf of the FAA, particularly with regard to when they might respond or what information they may request. There is always the chance that they will ask for additional information which will prolong the process. Ours are best estimates based on extensive past experience with the FAA.

NOTE: For our BasicMed exams we generally use the same medical criteria as an FAA 3rd Class, but can provide a bit more flexibility with some of their Special Issuance policies/requirements.
