MedXPress Information for the Pilot
FAA MedXPress is a web application pilots must use to submit their certification applicant information (Items 1 through 20) of the FAA Form 8500-8.
Pilots need only a valid email address to create a MedXPress account to use FAA MedXPress. MedXPress is designed to expedite the processing of a
pilot�s request for certification and shorten the pilot�s office visit with the AME.
As of October 1, 2012, pilots are required to use MedXPress. MedXPress is located at https://medxpress.faa.gov/
At this time MedXPress is not available for use by FAA Air Traffic Controllers.
