What is MedXPress?
The FAA MedXPress system launched in 2007 allows anyone requiring an FAA Medical Certificate or Student Pilot Medical Certificate to electronically complete the FAA Form 8500-8. Information entered into MedXPress will be transmitted to the FAA and will be available for your AME to review at the time of your medical examination. More Info on MedXPress (FAQ's).

A person who meets FAA airmen medical standards, based on a medical examination and an evaluation of medical history, is entitled to a medical certificate without restriction or limitation other than the prescribed limitation as to its duration. Individuals required to hold a medical certificate must have it in their personal possession at all times when exercising the privileges for which they are licensed.
Aviation Medical Examiners (AMEs) are physicians who are authorized to issue medical certificates if the applicant must meet the medical standards. Find an AME for me.
